It won't be october.
December - perhaps.

All hardware bugs should hopefully be found and determined to be 
non-important, or workroundable by the first qualified testers to be 
shipped devices. (this has not happened yet)
If this does not turn out to be the case, the device will not go on sale 
in december, but a new hardware revision will need to be produced, and 
again tested.

It is not intended (as I understand it) to release possibly buggy hardware.
