It was only ever available for pre-order and it seems they pulled that.

Not surprising: as smp_iliad pointed out, the stylus is a big part of using it. Even for navigation, using the buttons gets old really fast, and the new toolbar functionality, which is very handy, would be unusable without the stylus.

And frankly, considering how much the device costs anyway nowadays, trying to shave off a little of the price for a rather substantial loss in functionality just doesn't make sense.
