Where did the Sailfish hype go?

I remember just a few months ago we were shown a prototype model. Many people went crazy over it. Some said the OS was going to change everything, some said the different style of the back cover opened the doors for new type of technology (detachable keyboard comes to mind). They announced that are orders would open up in November (or was it gonna ship? I don't remember). Yet today we don't see one single comment or article mentioning it. Was that all just in the moment? Or do you think people (in the tech community) are waiting for it? Are you waiting for? Will it be a game changer or will it just disappear after release? I'm curious to see what are people's thoughts on it,
