Ronen,

The 3rd - 6th characters in the serial number equal the manufacture year and week. SYour serial number is 12 = 2012 and 30 = 3rd week of July.

They usually make their way from manufacturing to distribution in about 3 months and then maybe 1-2 months after that at a local retailer's shelf. It also depends on the model maybe how quickly they move off the shelf. I think 7 months is a little on the higher side but we'd warranty it 3 years from the purchase date in case there are any problems. Just make sure to keep your proof of purchase smile
