Specs likely won't be available until after the Olympics. I expect camera will ship mid-March to mid-April.
Why is this pissing you off? Do you have some vested interest in the ship date? This is customary for every Nikon release I can remember. Camera undergoes a 2 years of development, limited testing, open testing (like now), firmware and details get locked down, camera gets priced and announced, and camera ships. The winter Olympics are the chance for final shakedown. Nikon is likely getting daily feedback from the shooters at the games, and tweaking firmware daily.
They'll lock it down probably first week of March, and start flashing the cameras and packing. Probably 2 weeks to get it delivered worldwide for rollout. I think sales of the D4 were soft, so I think they are taking their time to get this one right.
Do I have a vested interest? Yes, I been a Nikon user for forty (40) years and have had the occasion to test Nikon cameras prior to their release to the general public. I know the process! I don't like this cat and mouse game that many manufacturers have adopted. Now I see that the D4s is going to be 24mp (allegedly).

I'd bet that IF (and I repeat IF) it were a higher MP count, then the price would be substantially higher than the D4. I am hoping it's priced the same. I personally do not need the higher MP count.
