Pi Zero

As of now, there are multiple resellers for Pi Zero - recently, about 30 more have been added. The site-to-go for looking up Pi Zero availability used to be whereismypizero.com, but now there's thepilocator.com , which has all the online resellers listed, so this is the recommended site to find a place to get a Pi Zero.

You can get either a Zero or a Zero W - the Zero W has Bluetooth and doesn't require ESP8266 (thus freeing some pins that can be used for mod boards). However, due to lots of metallic parts around Zero W antenna, WiFi range is slightly decreased, and Bluetooth is not yet supported - due to the UART remapping that's necessary for GSM modem to work, enabling Bluetooth seems to need some software fixes, and it's not yet clear which exactly.
