The MicroCenter has been stocking these since day one, but they sell
out quickly.

I got one the first day.  They are very nice.  One tip: don't try to
boot it from an "old" image that works with previous models.  The Pi2
has an ARMv7 core and you need to use one of the recent spins that
support it.  All the old hardware attachments should still work
(unless you are trying to power it up the USB ports - that no longer
works - you have to put +5V in either the GPIO connector or the
microUSB power connector.  This affected my wiring arrangement for my
Motorola Atrix dock).
