Is NEC planning a 3520 with SATA?

I've been thinking of upgrading my 2500A to the new 3520A but would like to get the new burner in SATA. Anyone heard plans of NEC rolling out SATA anytime this year?

No news of a SATA NEC drive. SATA optical drives are thin on the ground, the ones that are out tend to be not so good as a normal IDE drives.

Not only that, but there is currently no benefit to optical drives of using SATA. As there is a benefit to hard drives, I will be saving my SATA connectors for that and using the IDE for optical.
