My understanding is this is an inline change, that they will be sliding in the 2i as the original is gone. It looks to me that the original is already gone in the US. I was told that by late September all new shipments would be the 2i variety.
The switch has already occurred in OZ.
If the distributors know anything about it they are tight lipped.
Watching the youtube videos it still looks like the mobile app is in desperate need of updating.
But I will purchase a 2i when I can get my hands on one.
As an aside I would still like to see the mount vendors enter the 21st century with regard to electronics. Maybe the anti-trust beating that Synta / Celestron / Meade / Sky-Watcher took in the US courts will help matters...
