My System Specs

Just why would you want this? As many have mentioned already the screens are wide enough it is height that we need. Now if say they had down a resolution of say 3414x1440 or 3792x1600 then I could see this being something to get interested about, but as they are now they just are not good compared to the existing 27's.

You are probably right that it won't be as good as a 27" but a lot too depends on price point. Some People want wider, or for me at work this would be better than doing it with multi 19's etc. It really depends on the market, and how they position it. I see it as more of a workstation Screen than anything else. Still, would be nice to try one out just to compare.
