Re: Too much cellphone production making fab space for Pi's

The May 11th Blog post quoted RS as saying: A secure delivery schedule is in place for the next 75,000 Raspberry Pi boards, which will take us through May and June. ... To give you some idea of what this means, by 5pm GMT on the day that Raspberry Pi launched, 29th February, we had received around ...

Re: Too much cellphone production making fab space for Pi's

I'm afraid, as you said, that this is just a guess. And fortunately, not an accurate one! Let's hope so. Presumably you have more accurate information. Are you prepared to share it? Yertiz Yes I do; no I'm not. I see from the review at http://www.pcauthority.com.au/News/301056,raspberry-pi-the-40-p...

Re: Too much cellphone production making fab space for Pi's

Whilst RasPi parts are pretty much commodities they still have to be ordered. Nobody will have 250,000 SoCs sitting on a shelf so it will take a little time to get the components together. The other pinch point will be the resources of RS and Element 14. They can’t simply suddenly expand to be able ...

Re: Cancelling my order

It is a little slow. Loading a Forum page takes around 5 sec...

Re: still no paypal ?

Let’s hope so.  I would have thought RS order numbers should get to around 4700 by the end of the day if they are processing all of the available pis.

Re: still no paypal ?

<t>Are you suggesting that more than 600 pis were held back for press etc?<br/> <br/> RS should have received 4,700 pis to sell by now.  If you are suggesting that orders in the region of 24xx is all they will be dispatching from the original 10,000 batch then that suggests a further 2,200  or so ha...

I haven't heard anything from RS since 04.04.2012. Am I alone in this regard?



Same here. Thanks for registering on 1 March and again on 9 March.  Updates on 15, 23 and 29 March and 4 April. Nothing since.
