I tried to fake a purchase choose Norway and Consumer this is what I got

Unfortunately we can no longer sell Raspberry Pi to private consumers in countries which are not listed but we can continue to take business orders in all countries. We are still building our network of Approved Retailers in some countries so If you do not see your country’s flag, please search online for another suitable retailer.


Norway - Coming Soon

Sounds like they are looking for a new distributor for consumers.

I chose Business and it took me to the page to buy it unfortunately I don't think this option will help you.

Same here for Denmark

Just ordered from Allied Electronics & RS instead, but looking at some other threads I might be waiting a looong time for it to be shipped :(

Not shipping to Estonian consumers either, only to companies with a VAT number. I'm glad I got my order in a week ago and they already shipped it last Friday.

One more thing to say,

I was planning to order a second Pİ from farnell and just saw the new system. Unfortunately, for the country I am living in (Turkey), there is only an electronic shop, which doesn't sell Pi at all.

I checked Finland (my favorite country), and without shipping, they are selling it for 50 dollars. So I think "get a Pİ for 35 dollars" slogan is dead after Farnell's move.

Switzerland isn't even on the new "Approved Retailers" list. Did you every get any reason for this change?

Hi,

It is the same story for France. Following the recent CERN jam, several people have been asking me how to order their own Pi. Since Farnell was present at the event, several people have tried to buy from Farnell.

Regards,

Will

The Raspberry itself can be ordered by many webshops in norway, but no one has picked up on the camera yet as far as I can see.
