    I finally procured one today! Went to Best Buy last week for a 64G WiFi, and had second thoughts, so I browsed the CD section for a moment. When I finally decided to go for it, the salesman said the last one was just sold 5 minutes before. Drat! Scanning the BB website all week lead to nothing! A 3G model was available for a day then was gone. Nothing else at the 6 semi local stores. Went to the apple website sunday night to do the deed, and begin the long wait. The order timed out while a last minute debate between the 32, and 64 insued. It was late at that point, so I said to heck with it, I'll do it tomorrow instead, and double check BB one last time. As 5 O'clock rolled around @ work, I checked the website one more time. There it was in all it's glory! A 64G Wifi in stock, and about 20 minutes away. I headed out hoping I wouldn't lose this one in the final 5 minutes as was the case last time. This time there was no hesitation. I grabed the first salesperson I saw as I grabbed my wallet. I made it in time!

    Wow, that was lucky. I looked at BB and they only had the 16gb wifi in stock and the 64GB 3G. I didn't want to spend money on 3G since At&T isn't "great" with their coverage in my opinion. Congratulations though!

    Congrats. I admire your restraint :)

    As soon as I watched Jobs unveiling in January I knew I wanted one and ordered online at 4:30 of the morning preorders were accepted.

    Best bit of kit I've bought in years.
