I ordered mine yesterday. Should get it around Aug 7th. As for power if you look on Google's website it said:

USB power cable
Power adapter

So it has to be externally powered.

HDMI does not have a power connection built in. I got mine at Best Buy today - they had them in stock. The thing is slick and simple to use.

If you have an HDMI port marked 1.4 MHL you don't need a power cable, your TV will power it. I have two power HDMI ports on the back of my Sharp LC-60LE757 60-inch Aquos Quattron 1080p 240Hz Smart LED 3D HDTV.

"Chromecast is powered from a combination HDMI 1.4+ & MHL port, a USB port, or a power adapter, and employs an embedded version of Chrome OS. "
