After the initial wave of developer kits is gone, those who still want one will apparently have to wait till the commercial version arrives sometime next year. Developers who want the early access will have only till July 31st to get their application into Microsoft. Those selected will be notified at some point in August.
Microsoft says that the number of development kits for Kinect for Windows will be limited, but they are not saying how many. There seems to be significant interest in the next Kinect development kit. If you thought some interesting things were possible with the old Kinect, the new Kinect offers even more possibilities, we are told.
