I found the Radioshack.com website now has the Esplora.  Yesterday (Boxing Day - Dec. 26th) I went to my local store in Virginia, US, and bought one.  The clerk stated he had them in stock for two weeks.  The cost is $64.99 and they have a promotion - getting a $10 credit coupon with every $50 spent.

The board is bigger than I thougt at about 16 cm.  In the box it also comes with a USB to microUSB cable to program it with, a bonus.

I'll be firing it up soon.  I'd like to see if I can get it connected to a radio and battery pack to make it a portable controller.  I'm hopeful Adafruit may have some projects posted after Radio Shack's exclusivity ends.
