Raspberry Pi: Slow but Coming

By Graham K. Rogers


An email circulation from RS Online has provided interested parties with an update on the state of play with the now slightly-delayed Raspberry Pi boards.

Raspberry Pi

  • 2,000 boards have now been shipped to the Raspberry Pi Foundation in Cambridge, UK (a number of images are available online);

  • RS and Farnell are working together with the Foundation to accelerate testing, making sure that all Raspberry Pi's meet the required safe-for-use standards, as many people will be using their Pi's as a finished product;

  • As soon as certification has been achieved, we will receive our allocation of the first batch of boards. We're hopeful that this will be very soon;

  • The dedicated Raspberry Pi store is getting ready to open to the first group of people in our queue. Once they have placed their orders, we'll then start inviting the next-in-line into the store;

  • More deliveries are expected shortly, so we can start fulfilling the extraordinary demand for the Raspberry Pi. We'll keep you up-to-date via our weekly email and online FAQs.

    I hope to be early in the queue to get my hands on one of these.
