Well, of course I don't know for sure, tending to look at mostly the cheapest stuff, which is less likely to do gigabit. But yes, I'd expect that for any $TYPE_OF_DEVICE it will be available with gigabit. But unless that speed is critical for the use, it will also still be widely available without it. So the question is, how much has the long term, and now affordable, availability of gigabit translated into actual use? (And nearby questions, like why, and will it be very different in a few years?)
