Many thanks for the clarification. Well, if I should be one of the lucky 
I would be happy indeed. The 770 is already great, and I would really 
like to get to know it's successor and work with it. At least the news 
managed to clearly rise the priorities for my 770 activities above the 
others - which will never hurt anyway.
