PINE64 already made Pinephones available from cancelled orders and failed transactions on their online store about three weeks ago, I purchased a KDE Plasma Mobile convergence package. They were gone in a day or two.

I found out because I'm following PINE64's account on Mastodon: https://fosstodon.org/web/statuses/105669937410217735

As mentioned in the February update, there's a global shortage of electronics components, so it might take months before new Pinephones are available for purchase. We'll probably get a status update on the issue in the next monthly update from PINE64.

I think the best place to look for people reselling Pinephones is this forum. You just need to be vigilant and visit daily because they tend to go fast. One was announced in this very forum section 6 days ago and sold the next day. You could also post a topic that you're looking for one. I suspect there are many Pinephones sitting unused in drawers, so you may get lucky! And maybe you could have a look at the other PINE64 communities (IRC, Discord, Matrix, Telegram & Reddit).

I already have a UBports CE Pinephone but its SD card slot is defective. In any case I found it has not enough RAM nor storage for my use, so I also purchased a mainboard upgrade for it last week when they were (again, briefly!) available. Once I make the upgrade, I'll have a spare Pinephone that I may try to resell, but it will probably take a few months before I do. I'll want to keep them both for a while to compare different OS side-by-side. Smile
