1DX Intro: Why now and not next February??

Like the subject line says - why did canon introduce the 1DX a full five months before it will be available. Wouldn't this tend to suppress sales of the 1D4? Or is Canon expecting people who prefer an APS-H crop camera to buy that model before it becomes unavailable?

Any thoughts??
