I finally got to see the Dealer Chat from last week over the weekend, from what was said on the Dealer Chat I would not be suprised if the 508 was ever released.

Jim said they wanted opinions from Dealers if they think the customers out there would want to spend $100 for a larger hard drive. (Shouldn't they do the market research FIRST before doing a product announcement?)

You'd think that with the price in hard drives dropping, E* could just put out a 40 or 60 GB expansion module to fit the 501. I understand the 508 to be a 501 with the twice the harddrive. Not worth most 501 owners to take the loss on selling their units to upgrade.
I personally already got my 501 sold when the 721 comes out so I'm all over it.
