    Still damn ridiculous that I can't stroll in to my local Apple Store and find them (and the keyboards) on the shelf.

    The three Apple Stores near me (one of which is a very high volume store) get only a couple per shipment and they tell me they sell nearly instantly. I even spent last week in Chicago and at the Michigan Ave. Apple Store both the Pencils and keyboards sold out within a couple hours of receiving each shipment... checked 4 times in a 6 day period and none in stock when I was there (and they wouldn't hold them for pick-up).

    The smart keyboard is in stock as well. I think that thing is harder to find than the pencil.

    No problem. After posting this I saw it was in the iPad Accessories forum, but it looks like it's helped a few out anyways.

    Thanks for the heads up! Ordered one. Now I have to stalk them for the iPad Pro Cellular. It's sold out online, and not available at our local store.

    Can you get one through your mobile carrier?

    I don't know. But I'd rather buy through Best Buy to earn points. I can wait until it's in stock.

    Ah ok. I didn't realize the LTE models were scarce.

    It seems to be that way, at least in Best Buy. I've been checking every couple of days. It's readily available from Apple though, online and locally.

    I created an IFTTT recipe for Best Buy smart keyboard online availability alert. We'll see how well it works :)

    You are completely right. I just checked....I have $960 dollars in best buy gift cards i wanted to use on the LTE tablet and for some reason, Best buy never has any in stock but when i go to the apple store, they always have one.

    It's annoying to say the least.

    I bought all that stuff from the Michigan Ave Apple store. Walked in on a Saturday afternoon around 2 to buy an iPad and they had pencils. I grabbed 2, 1 for myself and one for a friend. Went back a few days later when they opened, they had keyboards, so I grabbed one, and I saw they had pencils, so I grabbed one for my brother. Maybe I just got lucky, but I found this pretty easy.

    Darn. So close to buying an open box on sale for 89.99 but when I was ready to check out it was already gone! On the best buy website the pencil is still listed as "Sold Out Online." Grr
