Delays.
I'm seeing places in the UK that have these in stock for the past few days. I would have thought FT would have at least got them at the same time or earlier. Is there an issue with FT in particular? Also, why have the coloured splatter editions been delayed longer than the others?

I don't know why FT get stock later than others but it is common for there to be delays with pre-order gear that is likely to be in high demand - I have noticed that stores that charge a higher price get stock faster than here. Ecigone (who are a UK low price/discount store) have them - but they are £115, you will have to wait longer here - but the price I paid was under £75.

The longer delay for splatter editions could be a simple supply issue - if orders for the solid colours are much higher than for splatter they will be a lower priority.

All guesswork rather than solid fact, but this seems to be the case for all high demand pre-release stock.

It sucks that the date has been put back for the third time (it is now 21 days later than the original date given) but I think its just a case of if you want something dirt cheap you have to wait for it.

I agree with everything you've said and I find it entirely acceptable. I think it's the being not sure that is the issue. I ordered two, a solid and a splatter, I also have a steam crave tank that has changing dates.

The resident genius has offered to give me advice on how to set mine up with eScribe if I have problems. I'm so lucky.

I think I'll check my life insurance adequately covers me first

Say what you want, but I only buy Evolv chips these days. They are great, and yeah, I was chosen to beta test the 100c first batch. No biggie, just a fan and customer that believes in their products, especially the warranty...and I do know a little bit about them....here's 40 or so DNA mods before going on the new shelf.
