WBI at EWR - any sightings yet?

Over in TS/S someone posted a link to an article about all of the NY area airports getting the whole body imaging units ("nude-o-scopes") shortly. Since I haven't been through EWR in a while (my last 4 itineraries have been out of PHL), I was wondering...anyone notice anything different at the A or C checkpoints yet?

I'm particularly curious as to which type of NoS units will be installed at EWR. I'm hoping they opt to go with the millimeter wave scanner rather than the backscatter X-ray - in part because the footprint is similar to the existing WTMD units (and EWR's checkpoints aren't exactly what you'd call 'spacious'), and in part because MMW doesn't fire X-rays at the poor unsuspecting pax. (Put another way, I'd be less likely to opt out from a MMW than a backscatter.)
