The Pi Zero W  (W being the key) has both WiFi and Bluetooth like the
CHIP.  There's also 10+ in stock at the Microcenter near me (Wayne, PA).

 the *Raspberry Pi Zero W* was launched, which is identical to the
Raspberry Pi Zero, but has the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionality of the
Raspberry Pi 3 for US$10.
