They are being more than conservative in those estimates... It is a lot easier to say you can't ship until April and then ship earlier because they showed up before then. People don't like it when you say they will ship and you miss the date.However, You can't wait to order.....
On the 29th, I ordered one from Newark who said they had 0
in stock. An hour later, I got a shipping date (Nov 30th), it shipped on the 30th.
Yesterday, on the 30th, Sparkfun
had more than 800 units up for sale pop up (they had never had them before)... They lasted a few hours before they sold out.
They are a hot product and as soon as they are publicly available they will be gone quickly.
