They never said Q1 though, so nothing got delayed... early 2012 is not defined as a specific quarter.
Even though they say "early 2012" they are saying Q1 even if they never actually said it.
January - February - March (Q1) = Early 2012
April - May - June (Q2) = Mid 2012
July - August - September (Q3) = Mid 2012
October - November - December (Q4) = Late 2012
And now that we know they are targeting for a Q2 release then it is pretty much delayed since they said "early 2012" but thats not correct to say its still Q2.
Why are you splitting it up in quarters? If they wanted it to be quarters they would have said so. They sais early 2012, the year has 12 months:
Early: Jan, Feb, marts, april
Midd: maj, juni, juli, aug
Late: sept, okt, nov, dec
But anyways, I don't think you can call it delayed before theres been an actual release date and it then gets pushed, but thats just me :)
Why are you splitting it up into thirds?
See what I did? : )
Anyway, there wasn't a release DATE but there was a release WINDOW and that window was PUSHED BACK, hence another DELAY.
I don't get how anyone can say there wasn't a delay, I feel like you're just trying to pick an argument if you do. The definition of the word does not require a specific DAY. They had a target time frame to release and that time frame was changed...delayed.
De-lay 1. To postpone until a later time; defer. 2. To cause to be later or slower than expected or desire
