In a recent link shown on A.net refererence was made to the fact that Boeing will not have specifics out on the type until about September 2006.
Thus it is unlikely there will be any orders for the passenger version until firm detail is in the hands of the airlines

There's a chart of "Candidate Asian 747-8 Customers" in the linked article:
