Re: Accessories

Can any one kindly tell me how much does a charger and a pre-loaded SD card costs when purchased with RP on any of the two official sites.
Better if one could provide me with a link.

If the allow cash on delivery that would be perfect.

In fact most of the 'Made in China' usb adapters available in my town seem not that reliable abt how much voltage / power output they would actually be giving so in that case if that adapter works fine with other devises then i hope it should work fine with RP too. Am i right ?

Re: RP in China

5 days and September makes a lot of difference.
In fact i do not feel RS is in any way reliable.
Can you kindly tell me on which site you placed the order ?
I am not sure abt Element 14 as in last few months i have not received any invitation from them to place an order.
Kindly advise.

Re: RP in China

No i am asking somthing different.

(1) where would it be cheaper to buy RP - Switzerland or China
(2) What is the procedure to buy if i want my friend to buy it in Switzerland ? Do i need to register my interest again ? Because while registering we are not asked where the package will be dispatched !

Re: RP in China

Thanx both of you. So the story again is : its is Chinese language :) I do not understand why they do that or atleast they should ask for the language preference or give an option to change it. Instead of taking decision themselves. I do not understand what do they do for countries where there are l...
