I went over to the Newark Electronics site (the USA site for Element14).  They are only collecting information for 'registering an interest', but I saw this:

"By providing your contact details you are agreeing for your details to be used for marketing purposes by companies within the Premier Farnell Group."

Both phone number and email are required.  I have no problem providing that for an order to be placed, but I am not going to agree to be spammed by email and phone for marketing.

You, like myself, got to the wrong page. The Newark search engine will take you to a register your interest page but if you use google you can actually find a product listing that has a "Buy" button. It's a pre-order and don't expect to receive it before mid april but it's there.

Thanks fireraiser.  I found the Newark page via Google search as you suggested.  For other interested folks, it's here:

They are listing 30 day delivery.  They also won't provide shipping costs until the order is placed?!?

I cant even back order from there. I need it delivered to Brazil and they require a DHL accounto to charge to.

So frustating....
