I asked and got a response from Amigakit.

I am an Amiga 1222plus early adopter. How does that work? Will you notify me when the boards become available or do I have to prepay now? I have registered my serial number.

Thanks,

Charles

Their Response:

The A1222 Plus is run by A-EON and not us.   No money has been taken for the motherboard yet for prepayments.

Thank you.

Also Dealing with Amedia Computer, they said "A-Eon has been completely overwhelmed on last week."  I was hoping to look here and see good news on the A1222.

Here is my thoughts:

Acube is starting production on the SAM460LE which should be done sometime this summer, hopefully.  In the past, they filled in when the AmigaOneXEs stopped production.  So I am thinking they are filling in once again until whatever is going on with the X5000 and A1222 gets corrected.  I would think we might see something after the Acube has ran its course.

Surprisingly there is an update on

Quote
we agreed with ACube to double the initial production order in an attempt to secure a lower price per unit. Enrico's latest news is the factory that made the prototype A1222+ boards is tied up until next year and another company he approached quoted double the original price. Enrico is waiting for quotes from two other manufacturers

I'm waiting for Sam460le. Hopefully, we will get Tabor but it's almost 6+ years. Hard to blame last few years for delay.

I just received and email today from Chronopost France.   Amedia Computers just shipped my new X5040 mother board.  How exciting is that?

... and why can't AmigaKit bring themselves to bury the hatchet with Hyperion and continue to sell the X5000 with OEM AmigaOS license?

Oh yeah, the support for the CPU in the X5000/40 is over as of May 2022 (over two months ago) even before it's on general release! Insane!

My P5040 has arrived this morning. 

Here is a better question.  Why did my x5040 have to be shipped from UK to Amedia computers in France and then to me in the States.   Why isn't Amigakit selling them???   Is there logic if they release the X5040 it will kill demand for Tabor?   It defies logic.

It looks to me like A-EON doesnt want to sell Amigas and just sit on old obsolete hardware and components.

I think it's more of a case that another X5000 production run is unlikely to be green lit while...

A) The initial A1222 Plus order has not been placed (it is likley to be 200No. units now and hence quite an outlay).

B) There is still surplus X5000 machines on sale from Amedia.

C) The OEM license standoff between AmigaKit and Hyperion remains.

Sad but true. Also, I don't know how many P5040/P5020 chips they've stockpiled. They won't be getting any cheaper now that they're unsupported by NXP.

Kim and Matt, with the help of “Tabor” and Imraith-Nimphais, rescue the Paraiko. Ruana, their leader, chants kanior—a ritual of forgiveness and lamentation for the dead that is tied to the Paraiko's non-violent nature and the bloodcurse that protects them. So powerful is his performance that it invokes not only all the Paraiko that have died through the centuries but even their enemies; both he and Kim sense a finality in it, as is proven when the Baelrath blazes and summons Kim to change the Paraiko's pacifist natures so they can fight against Maugrim.

I disagree with the "Stock pile of x5000s @ Amedia".   They told me that only P5040 MB were available and I had to wait for A-EON UK to ship them out.  That was for mother boards or complete machines.  They had no X5000s in stock.

Thats what is weird.  A-EON is selling them to Amedia but not to Amigakit.
