I am just wondering why no one at Atmel has the balls to simply cancel the device.

It's dead Jim!

It seems, the ATmega1284 returns to life soon.
Since Atmel has updated the datasheet recently (July 2009).
I hope, nobody would update the datasheet for a dead device. :)

Note Atmel used the magic "now available" in the press release. We know what that means in Atmel's code book of lies.

And once they really have the 1284 and 1284P out, how many month until they will be obsolete? Atmel is moving to that new process with all the A devices. Why don't they just cancel the 1284 and 1284P and announce a 1284A and 1284PA for, lets say, the year 2015 or 2020?

I think it only means available for samples and not necessarily to the hobby user or the small user.

So if you plan on using 20 millions I'd say you can get them. This what seems to happen with other micro manufacturers and I'd guess Atmel too:

"Huge company" wants a new micro with bells and whistles, micro manufacturers grovel for the business, they will make a chip to suit the company and announce it as available,"Huge company" gets all the chips they need for a year or 2, when they have used enough the rest goes into the distributors.

(The above is a true story only the names have been changed to protect the innocent)
