Did you notice anything missing? I dont see a cordless impact in the list. :( It seems very odd to me that are not going to have a cordless impact at launch. Do they just not know how invaluable they are, or maybe they just haven't had enough time to catch up with the rest of the field?

I am sure a number of you are wondering why it took Bosch so long to compete with the rest of the lithium-ion boys, but at last, now we have our tools. 

Let us hope they do not disappoint.

As always, review your Bosch tools here.
