My guess is retailers sold more 996XT's than expected or anticipated by Uniden during Christmas 2012. It takes scanners and other electronics at least a month to make the trip from manufacturing plant to USA distributors if they go the cargo ship method.
I bet in a month, the market will be flooded with new 996XT's.
