I look over the screen, getting ready to commit, and see shipping estimated at some time in NOVEMBER! WTF???

It's very mis-leading having that "2 to 3 days" on the product page, and then bait and switch to the 3 to 4 week timeframe on the purchase page.

Anyone with similar experiences?
Yeah, that was my exact experience. I went to Amazon 5 minutes before I had to leave the house for work, saw they had the red 8310's with 2-3 day shipping, ordered that and a red Jawbone bluetooth headset then rushed out the door to work. On my break I checked my e-mail on my phone to make sure I got a confirmation e-mail from Amazon. As I slowly scrolled down, I saw an estimated delivery date for the Jawbone of 16-17 Oct (woo-hoo). I kept scrolling down to find the estimated delivery date of of the 8310 of anywhere between 5-7 November (WTF!!!). So when I got home I promptly signed on to Amazon and cancelled the order. It was thankfully quick and painless--since it was a weekend they hadn't even placed the authorization on my credit card yet, but I'll call on Monday just to verify. $99 was a great price, but not to wait a whole month.
