I think the only remaining question is the price per kit. Per luc's link, it looks like it'll be a smaller, cheaper MiSeq with almost exactly the same specs.

http://core-genomics.blogspot.ie/201...y-miniseq.html is reporting that the run prices will be vastly lower than the MiSeq though, which would make this a much more interesting proposition. Not sure if that'd be in Illumina's interests, though - though the markup on SBS kits is obviously gigantic, so they might have made the calculation that they'd make more money selling lots of cheaper kits for cheaper sequencers than they get from their current relatively-small-but-lucrative market.
