I've run Arch and XBian on them. XBian works like a charm. Smooth and fast. So far enjoying it as a multimedia box. In process of making a security cam and motion detector with the other one.

Cheers RPi!

I had placed an order with element14 on Nov 7. I was told that procure time is 3 weeks.
Today, I was browsing this forum and found that tenettech.com is selling it online.
Called them immediately and they said stock is available and can deliver it today itself.
Immediately placed the order and received the pi by 2 pm. They delivered it by hand. That was fast!!!
Also bought a original pi jewel case from element14.

Do a search by "Product Name". Search for "Raspberry Pi". Looks like they are currently out of stock; but their customer service is good and responsive. They should be able to give you a lead time.

The URL shared above is a section for ordering items from element14. Not sure if it is just a commercial arrangement or if Kits 'n' Spares is a subsidiary of element14. Ordering directly from element14 seems cumbersome for Indian customers - you need to have a commercial tax identification number, for example.


Did you get the Rev 2 or Rev 1 board and how was the packaging and shipping?

I got mine from kitsnspares. They delivered mine in about two weeks from when I ordered. And yes, the board I received was shipped from the UK, in a package with Farnell/Element14 logo on it.

I ordered mine on Dec 5 from kitsnspares. Lets see how long it takes now. I sent them an email the next day asking for an ETA on delivery time but so far no response, probably because of weekend. I hope there won't be too much delay. Thought about buying from ebay India at first because of quick shipping but their atrocious prices turned me away.

I have just ordered Raspberry Pi from element 14. http://in.element14.com/

I have earlier thought of purchasing the same from Tenet Technetronics,Bangalore but people
have told that the people therein are pretty arrogant in dealing with customers, so I have chosen element14.

Hi,
Anybody tried connecting the Pi to the lapdock. I am interested in knowing who is selling the accessory to connect the lapdock to the Pi in India. I got my lapdock shipped from USA through ebay but i am not able to use it since the cables are missing.

Thanks in advance.
Amitabh

Hi and welcome to the forum.
Any lapdock is not designed to be used with the pi, only its dedicated mobile phone. You will need to source your own cables in order to use it with the pi.
Search the 'net and you will see where people have done it using suitable adapter cables.

Regards,
Texy

Thanks for your reply. I know what cables are required and where i will get them from. There are lot of Chinese sites who are selling the cables.

I am trying to find out if the cables are locally sourced in India. It will help me save time.

Also i am trying to find out if there is a RPi community in India especially in Bangalore. Would like to form a group with like minded people here in Bangalore, India.

Amitabh.

Raspberry Pi sell for more than $55 in India. You can get it from RS India, or kits n spare. There are few other resellers.

I got my Pi from Kits & Spares.

Service is good from them. Initially when I ordered my Pi was misplaced by the courier guys and delivered to wrong address and I was disappointed.

After speaking to the support team from Kits and Spares, the took some time for investigation and dispatched another one and ensured it reached me.

regards
Pradeep

If you're based out of Hyderabad (and anywhere in A.P), you may want to buy from us at competitive prices. We also ship inter-state

Check us out at http://store.potentiallabs.com

We're also starting a local chapter (user group), so make sure you're a part of it to learn and play away with the Ras Pi.

Happy RasPiing!!! :)

I just ordered my Raspberry Pi from element14. To register at element14 what you need is a TIN (Tax Identification Number) which is provided by the Government of India to electronic resellers and people who pay VAT. Now being an individual we don't pay VAT to the govt. directly so we don't get a TIN.

So the solution to this problem is getting someone else's TIN number preferably a relative's TIN. I used my uncle's number to register at element14.

Remember that you have to register using your name with your address and your relative's company TIN. After making an account, the process is fairly simple.

Hopes this helps.


Is your uncle working for an electronics company ? Is he a retailer ?
How long did element14 take to deliver your pi ?
How much shipping cost did they levy ?
