OK, so I got two emails from Nick - first was one that he has sent out to all people who have indicated that they want one from the next batch explaining things - he has received the boards and they are presently completing the units now that all parts are received. After that they will all need to go through quality control, and after that they will ship. He hopes that will happen by Nov 2nd, per the websites notice. Second email was just a response to my query confirming that he is OK with me passing all info along.
No idea how many units he has parts for, but I would suggest registering your interest with him so that one is earmarked for you if you are planning on getting one of these. Interest seems very strong right now with confirmation it works in Galaxy S3/Note II and with the Innerfidelity review.
