Yep, if you right-click the image and do a 'save as', it comes up with 'A700L-500x500.jpg'. So they're not revealing anything new just yet

I've heard the 800 is driven by gold chains. This is from a very reputable source

Get ready for the bling

Is there a forecast date, even an educated guess, on when this is coming out? The A700, as someone else said has never been big in the UK. The new price point would really help.

That's in pretty bad taste to put a product up for preorder with a picture titled a800 underneath it and then when you save it it saves as a700.

I'm curious what you think the thumbnail should be considering there has been no formal release of any information or photos of the A800. Once information and photos are made public, I'm sure the thumbnail will be corrected. Would you have preferred no thumbnail? Also, is it really that big of an issue?

Yes, no thumbnail would be better. Or perhaps an Awesomatix logo.

Putting an image of the wrong car is only going to mislead people.

On that particular shopping cart software the thumbnail is given the same label as the title of the product itself automatically. There's no intent to deceive. It's actually called an "alt" tag which is supposed to be alternative text for an image to be displayed on devices that can't display images, or for impaired people using screen readers.

As this news dropped a day before a huge US race of which Awesomatix USA is the primary sponsor, I'm guessing they wanted to get something online quickly and didn't have time to give critical thought to what thumbnail was used on the pre-order page.

Hopefully nobody is basing their buying decision on the contents of a 500 pixel image.
