Does anyone have any info on the opening of the new customs are in the North Terminal? Is an opening date anywhere near the horizon, considering MIA will be saturated with even more intl service in 2011.

Well have you heard anything that there would be a new customs area to begin with. The trAAin is currently being used to get people to the original customs hall which is quite large and unfortunately I dont think there are any plans to build a new immigration and customs area but of course I hope I'm wrong.

A new customs area is under construction:

There is a new CBP facility being built at MIA, to take care of the North Terminal International arriving flights (now being done through the "E CBP". The North Terminal is scheduled to be completed in a year the most, so it is safe to say that the new CBP facility will be opened on the second half of 2011.
The other One World companies operating at MIA (LA, BA, IB) will move to the North Terminal as soon as the new facility is opened.
According to the MIA web site the new CBP area for international arriving passengers at the North Terminal is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2010, and once fully operational will be able to handle 3600 passengers per hour through its 72 check lanes.

How will MIA handle all this surge in intl travel till then? I mean with KL coming in and DL starting flights to LHR and now a rumoured TK or EK service, where will these aircrafts be parked considering concourses J, H and F are operating at full capacity?

F is nowhere near full capacity, and E is increasingly empty all day long.

When construction is done in 2011, MIA will be an airport designed to handle nearly 65M annual passengers, but only handling around 35M.
