    Yeah it appears they are once again shipping from Best Buy. As of this minute anyway. I'm sure they will be gone soon.

    They have yet to make the Smart Keyboard available at all.

    Thanks for this!

    I was able to place an order for Free Ship to Store pickup.

    We'll see if it goes through.

    Looks like no ship-to-home option, but ship-to-store is still showing Nov 27 delivery for all the stores near me. Good find for the people still hunting for the Pencil. I'd get one, but my iPP isn't coming for another couple weeks (so says AT&T), so I don't want to take a Pencil away from someone that needs one now.

    Yes so I heard in the other thread after posting. :(

    Guess I haven't been stalking it enough.

    And just like that, BestBuy sold out of pencils again.

    I'm really surprised at how popular this Pencil is. I'm sure a lot of people that are not creative professionals are buying it.

    Since Apple still shows 4-5 weeks, everyone that wants one is looking to alternative sources. BB must be allowing orders for all the amount they know they're getting allocated. I belive this is the 3rd time they've been avaialble and have sold out.

    Ever had to mark up a PDF? I wouldn't call it creative work, but it's better with the Pencil than anything else I've ever tried.

    Sold out in about 30-45 min! I've also been visiting my local apple store on a daily basis and they've stopped receiving shipments of the pencil as of last Friday.

    I lucked out and checked earlier, saw the "Add to Cart" instead of "Check Stores"; bought it right away at around 10:15am and just got email that it shipped. Should have it tomorrow!

    Just ordered one from Best Buy - delivery on Monday - but I'll believe it when I get the shipping notification.

    Just checked the BB site. Pencil is available for store pickup only starting December 4. I placed my order.

    I looked 10 minutes ago and it was available for shipping, and express delivery would get it this Friday the 27th.

    Who is to say they will be available on December 4th? Obviously it cannot hurt to put it in the cart and proceed but a retailer can set any date to entice orders. Look at Staples, anyone get a Pencil from them?????

    Crap! I didn't even see that as an option!

    Is there any way to revise my order?

    BB seems to be fairly accurate with their estimates. I ordered one on Monday with estimated delivery on Friday and my current tracking status shows exactly what BB estimated.

    Yep, and if you have one reserved for the 4th for God's sake don't call Best Buy and change to home delivery, I just called to inquire and they Customer Service Rep I got changed the order to home delivery (I just wanted to ask, not make a change) and I lost my spot, no option to expedite the order...they threw me in the back of the line and hung up...

    FWIW - I received an e-mail overnight saying that my order has shipped to the store, and that I'll be notified when the store gets it.

    So, hopefully, I'll have the pencil well before December 4. :)
