Baofeng UV-82: Dual PTT

Lots of discussion popping up on the UV-5R Yahoo Group... and there is this tidbit:

It has a dual PTT, so you can transmit on A by pressing on the top of the PTT button or on B by pressing the bottom.

Nate sent me a note with some updates:
"Can be ordered now from a US dealer for $50: 
It also states that this radio is "Pending FCC approval" (which they probably will get, like they did with the Baofeng UV-5R variety). 
Also, checked the pictures here: 
Looks like you can unscrew the bolt that holds the Mic/Ear rubber cover, and bolt in an accessory plug, like you do with commercial rigs, which might suggest better build quality.
The two top LEDs on top might suggest dual RX at the same time, but you can't really tell. the display in the brochure isn't very encouraging (Only a single "S-Meter")."
Martyn posted his video of the UV-82 (see below) on the UV-5R Yahoo Group.
