When are the Cisco ASAs going to ship?

Someone told me that the ASA 5505 model wasn't going to ship until January 2008 (that's 2008, not 2007).  Is this really true?  Also, when will the ASA 5510 be shipping?

For what it is worth, if it is any help, I received the following, in an e-mail, from Cisco mid Oct:
"The Cisco ASA 5505 will become orderable and FCS with two different phases.  Phase One will encompass all bundles of the Cisco ASA 5505 Series, other than the 10 user bundles, and is orderable now, with FCS occurring in the October/November timeframe.  Phase Two will include the 10 user bundles of the Cisco ASA 5505 Series, and is planned for orderability and FCS in Q1 CY 2007."

What does FCS stand for?

Has anyone heard anything else?

Also, the 5510's have been available for awhile now.  Only just within the last few months have they added an extra module and SSL licensing.  Can go to www.cisco.com for details on versions and licenses of the 5510 available

Great!  Anyone heard of anything else?  Maybe something more specific on the 10-user node 5505 release?

I have been waiting on the 5505's for months now and so I check the FCS status frequently.  From among the distributors that I use, the earliest shipping timeframe that I have been told is end of November.  The 5505 10 user license will be first quarter 2007 as RobWill mentioned above.
