A number of places appear to be ready to have them around Nov 11th.

MCM and Newark are a two of them. I don't know of anyone that has them in stock now except speculators which are on ebay and such selling for 2x the value.

Got mine off of amazon. Paid a bit extra for it, but it was available to ship that day.

Thanks for another source other than newark & mcmelectronics(we'll just pretend like RS went out of business) as my latest order from Newark has now gone from shipping next week to the end of December, so I'm thinking of cancelling it and ordering from makershed(says "usually ships in 24-48h" now).

oops never mind. The OOS is in the text of the product description... maybe mcm...

We've received our latest shipment, but have sold through them already. Next batch is coming in around the 21st, we hear. That batch is not yet sold out.
