Here's some more info:

BuyTwoWayRadios.com released a flyer on Friday detailing some of the specifications for the Wouxun KG-UV8D.

At first glance, the specifications of the KG-UV8D above appear virtually identical to the Wouxun KG-UV6X (if someone can spot a difference, please let me know).

BuyTwoWayRadios.com has confirmed that they plan to offer the radio at $139.99 and will begin taking pre-orders this week. The KG-UV6X is $169.99 at Powerwerx (but also includes a dual-slot rapid charger at no extra charge).

Not Part 60... HOWEVER  CFR48Part90 Type Accepted....

This means that it can be used on ANY Part 90 Radio Service that you have a License for.......
