Don't think so. I went to a wh smiths today and no sign of them. I was told that the 64gb would be orderable via the website and that the 16 and 32 would be physically available in the store.

I've no indication that they have any idea when we are going to be to buy these things. They seem as much in the dark about the reality (rather than these fictictious dates being banded about) as everyone else.

It's quite a bizarre situation.
