    delivery/release

    Though the Pilot's translation app is available now, the entire earpiece package is planned for delivery in May 2017 at a retail cost of US$250 to $300.


    Hi,
    Is "delivery" in the above interchangeable with "release?" Thanks,

    Re: delivery/release

    No. Generally, when something is released, it appears in the shops. There's no suggestion there that they are going to deliver it (to you).

    You should write retail price.

    I didn't write it but it's a native speaker did, I suppose. Does retail cost sound bad?

    It's incorrect, but many native speakers wouldn't know that.

    planned for delivery

    Hi,
    Is "for delivery" in the above equivalent to "to be delivered?" If not, what does it refer to? Thanks,
