The Microsoft store!
I don't know if it is available in their bricks and mortar stores, but it
is available online with free delivery (and free returns).
$47.00 Canadian (less than US$35, the nominal and never discounted
price from authorized distributors in the US)!
Comes with an 8GB Micro SD card containing Windows 10 IoT.
(Consider this a free bonus, with a defect that is easily remedied.)
The page spends more ink on Linux than Windows.
They don't seem to offer cases, power supplies, or other accessories.
The picture shows a thing that is the size and shape of an SD card
with as raspi logo (as well as a MicroSD card). But the Raspberry Pi
2 can't use an SD card. Perhaps it is a superfluous MicroSD to SD converter.
(Older Raspberry Pi versions use an SD card, but I don't think that
they can use Win 10 IoT.)
