    just kiding


    They are not avaliable at Shoptemp, and the original ones are not being made anymore. The original Google code page asks to look for them on ebay.
    But either way, here are some places I think may have it:

    The original had 512KB of onboard flash memory while the SE version as a blue led. Neither feature is used by any apps for important purposes.

    That does seem like a good price, I have bought two from different places and both were around $65. The first one broke - the mini USB port isn't soldered on very well, so if you want it to last it might be worth adding some extra solder to the tags on the sides.
