Although first announced in October 2019, the rollout of Analogue Pocket was significantly delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic and the ripple effects of supply chain issues that accompanied it, but finally began shipping in late December 2021, for those who received their pre-orders early. Everyone else, including those who chose to wait until the publication of the notices before ordering, had a much longer delay before obtain their hands on one, so that should be good news for those lacking in patience.
