Pre-Order the New Canon EOS Rebel T2i for $899 Shipped

Amazon has the new Canon T2i for $899.
From this review in PC World:
Canon has taken features from its recent Canon EOS 7D -- an $1800 model-and brought those features downstream to a model half that price. The Rebel T2i uses the same 18 megapixel sensor as the 7D, but its channel reader is lower (four-channel for T2i, versus eight for 7D). Both models use the Digic 4 engine, and both have a 63 zone, dual-layer metering system. However, the T2i makes some concessions -- it can shoot at 3.7 frames per second, with a burst rate of 34 large fine jpegs, and 6 RAW images; and it has a 9-point autofocus system that's on a par with the T1i (the 7D, by contrast, has 19 focus points).
