Product with future availability date.

I’ve got a product that i’m interested in adding now, but not allowing people to purchase until a future date. In the interim, an “available soon” note might replace the add to cart button. Is there a way to do this? I looked through the product settings, but it looked like the closest thing was the active from date. Any help would be appreciated,

I need the same function. Example, in a product list, or in the product page, I need a text like: The product will be available on: “date”.
Then I set Backorder in the configuration and i still can put it in the cart.

The below module is pretty close to what you are looking for

http://www.scommerce-mage.co.uk/magento-extensions/magento-automated-product-publish-date.html

This module allows you to set when the products should be available on your site for your customers. This way you can create new products before hand and publish them on the given date automatically.

Here are the main features of this module-:

- It allows you to set future end date of your products so that products will taken out from your website on the given date
- It allows you to bulk update the products with future starat and end date which automatically publish or taken products out respectively from your website without manual intervention

- This module can be completely disabled whenever required via system configuration in admin
