    We have finally seen some movement on the Pencil but there has not been a lot of discussion of the Smart Keyboards. Any Apple shipments moving? Any out there in the wild at Apple stores? Any out there yet at retailers, Best Buy, Simply Mac, etc?

    I'm curious about this, too. My keyboard and Pencil were on the same order and my Pencil shipped today while the Keyboard is Still Processing. I saw yesterday that my local Best Buy had a spot on the shelf for the Keyboard, but it was empty, of course. No local Apple store.

    I have seen a few in apple stores but they appear to sell pretty quick like the pencil, probably before you can even check stock online.

    I think they are delayed because of all the fiddling and folding with that bad design. Takes forever to fold all those pancakes.

    I got a SK and pencil from my local Apple Store yesterday, courtesy of that store's Business Team. They brought it from the back in an sack, and the rep was clutching it to his chest like it was a bag of money. Woot!

    My keyboard switched to Preparing to Ship last night around 9PM, but this morning it's back to Processing. WTF? Good news is Pencil is delivering today.

    Mine switched to Preparing to Ship last night as also, credit card charged. No shipping notification as of yet, status is still PTS. My thought is will ship today from Mt. Juliet and arrive on Monday potentially missing out having it for the weekend. To echo mrob44, pencil is on the truck for delivery today as well.

    Well that is at least promising :) My 4AM EST (1AM PST) pre-order hasn't budged from 'Processing' ... but hopefully it is getting closer!
