Default S639 now available at Best Buy

Finally you don't have to import the s639 from the UK.
Best Buy has it on their site:

I think that I'm gonna pick this one up as I am so tired of waiting on the X series.
Sony has one of the worst marketing plans I've ever seen.
Their own website doesn't show the S or A series, all of which are available at other retailers.
They don't even have a release date set for the X1060 in the USA.
How do they expect to compete with apple when their marketing is so poor?

Brand new member here. I just noticed the same thing on the BB website, but it shows as being backordered for shipping and none in stock at my local stores. Wondering when they are gonna get these in as I've been waiting for this to be released stateside.

I'm glad we have a sony style store in town. As soon as I could get my s639, it was available.

I also have a local SonyStyle store. They have the red s638 (8GB model), but don't have the 16GB version (s639) in any color. Also, they don't know (or won't say) if they will be getting any or not.

I know they will be getting the X series touchscreen by mid-June or so, but I'm more interested in the 16GB s series for my uses.

Just wish either SonyStyle or Best Buy would start reporting stock of this model!

That's not cool then. I guess I was lucky to find a 16GB, because I first looked in futureshop and there wasn't any either. I thought it was an isolated case.

When did you buy yours and what area are you in (you don't need to give me your exact city if you don't want to).

Couldn't wait for Best Buy any longer, so I ordered an open box (but otherwise brand new) s639 (16GB) from Advancedmp3 in the UK. Paid a total of $159 US including shipping which took about a day and a half to Texas!!

A day and a half???? When I ordered mine, it took 2 damn weeks to arrive. I though they didn't ship it, or it got lost. And, they informed me that it was running on time in the shipping process. In other words, it arrives when it arrives!!!

I'm just glad you got such quick service. Any thoughts on it?

So far it's great. Only have used it for a day, so haven't had a chance to put it through it's paces. But I've owned a Sony before, so I know it will be great!
