While we’re not quite sure why they are still calling it a pre-order after an initial batch of Co-Star units hit doorsteps last month, but Vizio is once again listing their Google TV box for sale on their site. The $99 Co-Star is about as cheap a pathway to Google TV as you will find, so it’s no surprise that the company has had trouble keeping up with demand. While we have no way of knowing exactly how many units Vizio has pushed, since the GTV device has seen its status go from pre-order to unavailable and back several times in the past month.

New units are shipping on the 17th of this month, so orders should arrive in a little over a week. Just remember: the Co-Star is only available from Vizio’s site, so if you want one you will want to head over and put down a reservation now.

Update: If you didn’t act quick, you missed your chance to pick up the Co-Star for now. The GTV box is once again listed as out of stock shortly after Vizio’s site began accepting pre-orders once again. We’ll keep an eye on the buy page and let you know when more units are back in stock.
