I heard mid 2011, and the name is Carvex, not Centrex.

I hope it is sooner than latter...but it will be a Festools time frame.

I think the models are
Carvex PS 400 EBQ
Carvex PSB 400 EBQ 

In  another post I was given the following link...told me all I needed to know it was worth the wait.

The CARVEX Jigsaws are currently planned for release in NA around the beginning of summer, 2011.

The stated date is June 1 but please don't take that as a hard date. It is a prediction...
