Where did the HTC 8S go?

Apparently nobody really knows.

The originally planned release in early Movember was quickly postponed to the 20th. Yesterday, 3rd party Amazon retailers listed the 6th of December, today its the 18th.

What is going on there? Also, where are the reviews? There is not a single in-depth review of the device, though sites like TheVerge or Engadget must have had review examples for weeks now.
