Gonna be longer than that--portable tools have the motors built in,
they're not off-the-shelf parts, they're custom designs unique to the
tool. So to bring in the corded version they need to redesign it with
a 110v motor, order tooling, order parts, and get the line
going--that's likely to be a year or more _after_ they make the
decision, and they're likely to want several years of sales records on
the cordless before they do that.
I might help. I'll give the cordless version a serious look. ;-)
The PS-40[*] is a *great* tool. If this is half as useful, I'll

If they're half smart, and Bosch usually is, they would have
designed a dual voltage motor from the start. It's not all that big
of a deal. If the tool is at all useful (read: sells well) a new
version would take a few months of compliance testing to bring to
market. It would likely take longer to get the marketing
