Re: New accessories

is there anyplace you can actually buy a camera module?

Element14 is only accepting declarations of interest.
RS sends US customers to Allied.
Allied isnt accepting orders.

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

from what others have said, RS is an efficient and competent supplier. the future for RS in respect of Pi sales to the general public looks bleak. Yea, my initial order was with Allied, never dealt with RS directly but remembered Allied from my old Knight Kit days. They'll not get more business fro...

In my case it is listed on the order status page from the Element14 web site.

Re: Gertboard Ship Date

My order with Element 14 shows still open.
Order Date Aug 08

i got order confirmation email Aug 08

Estimates are estimates.
I guess I'll get it when I get it. At least I didn't order from RS.

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

Looks like RS/Allied is getting back on board. My original order (confirmed Mar 06) has languished and occasionally disappeared at times. My last interaction with Allied was a fairly complete email history sent to [email protected] on Aug 08. Had given up, ordered twice from Element 14, and recently took deli...

Re: Ordered via Newark in the USA

Newark is the US branch of farnell, allied is the US branch of RS. Technically, Allied and RS Components both answer to the same mothership, Electrocomponents. They seem to have an independent order processing systems, but it looks like the RasPi responses are mostly being fielded in the RS side of...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

I think these order numbers are for all their business, not just Raspberry Pis. Looks like the 2500 prefix is specific for Allied Orders. And my credit card has not been charged, should I be concerned about that at this point? Did receive confirmation email from them immediately. I think you're rig...

Re: Ordered via Newark in the USA

What sort of case? The only ones I've seen on Newark/Element14 are the Bud cases...which I don't care for. Yea, it was the red Bud case. Ir hasn't shipped yet.. And I've got the Lego case. Just trying things out still. At least Element14 is not holding up the whole order because of one line item. A...

Re: Ordered via Newark in the USA

Wow, you guys don't know how jealous I am! Ordered mine for Allied Elec July 26. Estimated delivery time on website: 18 weeks. Estimated delivery time in email: None (which is strange considering most people got a delivery time in their email). I'm really disappointed in everything about RS and All...

Re: RS Online

He ordered 2 more last tuesday and got a shipping email almost immediately. My wife seeing my frustration with this ordered me one from ...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

Still no word on my pi, not that I was expecting it. I wonder when that update from [email protected] that someone in the forum mentioned is coming... I just got a reply from Mike in re info I sent him from my order in March so they are still working on things. I suspect that they are all up to their butts i...

and 4. See my response to the situation in previous topic: Alternative to Allied? I really hope they get their act together. I have fond memories of allied as a budding geek in the '60s. Their catalog was always handy in a stack with Radio Shack, Lafayette Radio, Heathkit, and Estes Rocket. They see...

Re: Alternative to Allied in US?

I ordered Pi, Case and KB/Mouse on Aug 04. Ordered second Pi on Aug 05. Both orders confirmed on the same day with expected ship for Pis as Aug 15. KB/Mouse shipment confirmed Aug 06, tracking it via UPS. BTW, cancellation of my second order from Allied was confirmed Aug 06. They hadn't hit my credi...

Re: Alternative to Allied in US?

Thanks for the info. Placed an order with Element 14 for a second Pi (along with KB/Mouse and case) and am in the process of cancelling a second order with Allied. If Element 14 hits their estimated ship date, it would be more than a month earlier than Allied estimated and could arrive before my ori...

Alternative to Allied in US?

Is there any other way to order a Pi in the US. My order was confirmed by email on Mar 06 but has never showed up as open on Allied's web site. Nobody there seems to know when I'll get it. Meanwhile I've given up following Pi news because all I see is Eben and Liz giving them away. Sigh. Back to my ...
