Just saw this on Twitter:

MCM Electronics ‏@mcmelectronics

We've just received a large shipment of @Raspberry_Pi & acc. If you haven't seen the list in a while, check it out

I did in fact buy one from them early on, & they did deliver. Other than that, can't say much.

Newark had stock the weekend of Dec 9, but I ended up back ordered. To my surprise, I got a Pi delivered yesterday (Dec 21). I think they must be becoming a bit less supply constrained at the moment, at least compared to some of the delay stories I've heard from a few months back. If you order from Newark, you might also want to consider the Adafruit-approved USB power brick which Newark also distributes; I suspect it's better specced than some of the random "this should work" parts out there.

I bought one from Newark 2 days ago, website said it was 20 in stock but my order said back order and finally i got the UPS tracking shipping number yesterday. All good for Dec 28. Btw, i have one since 2 month now, great great board.
