    I thought they already had a Airport express. :confused:

    They do...

    ...for now. I agree, it is rather confusing.

    That can only mean that they're going to EOL the AirPort Express fairly soon and release a new version, called something else. AirPort Extreme Base Station Mini, maybe? Who knows? But they'll definitely have to rename it.

    I expect that this will be an 802.11n product.

    NB: I have not read the linked article, Mercury (the Web gateway) is on a go-slow.

    This is for the existing product. Earlier, they were relying on the Airport mark they bought out from the Windata bankruptcy.

    "Airport Express" (not for wireless) does have a bit of a muddy history, so it may be some simple healthy paranoia at work.

    this doesn't surprise me given the screen shots and reports from developers at WWDC that they were picking up a ~5Ghz signal

    Not sure how you all feel, but I have an airport express and it works great. It combines a hell of a lot of features.

    • router
    • print server
    • music streaming server
    • repeater
    • access point
    • remote base station

    What other manufacter has a single product that does all this? Plus you can use a few on your network and stream music into different rooms from different computers.
