So now that they're launched the i730, when are we going to see the i645/640?

This is certainly an interesting looking device. My i600 is built like a tank with its folding clamshell style and is perfect for my mountain biking, horse riding, ranching lifesyle. I wonder if this phone is as able to take hard work? For those days at the local coffee shop the bluetooth function sounds pretty wonderful.
