$99 Kindle Keyboard with SO Gone

Amazon seems to no longer be selling the $99 Kindle Keyboard with SOs. I'd wondered if they would be doing away with this model - which is why I went ahead and bought one in October. Now, I wish I'd bought one for my husband, too, since I'd decided to get him one for Christmas and now can't unless I go to a brick and mortar store, which I see as a problem.

Walmart - hate the place - can't imagine trying to deal with them if I got a unit that had a problem and needed to be returned.

Target - not one around. Best Buy is having sale on the K3 with 3G this weekend, but closest one is a couple of hours away and the small print on the ad guarantees a minimum of 5 units per store. That's not many.

I hate they seem to be doing away with what I think is the best Kindle they've made yet.

Well.... You can still get the one without special offers.

It is still sold at amazon.com (on Kindle Store page, click 'Buy a Kindle' link). Brick & mortar have limited shelf/display space to work with, it is reasonable that they do not sell each and every Kindle model, and are not carrying last year's Kindle.

Does anyone know what kind of warranty comes with the refurb - and where on Amazon I can locate the information? That's what I'm thinking about doing. (If I wanted one without the SO, I'd pay the same thing and get one with SO and 3G)
