Re: $50, dual core version?

Probably not. The idea is for a small unit to learn programming on. If you want dual core and masses of RAM, buy a PC.

Re: Where have the 10,000 first batch gone

I was told by a nice woman at RS that only 900 were made available to RS for distribution in UK. When you break it down, worldwide distribution, that sounds about right.

Re: YOU SUCK: the venting thread

riFFraFF, my sympathies are indeed from the heart. I know what it can be like when a favourite bit of kit is damaged for no reason or out of spite. Get on eBay, there must be a replacement out there somewhere.

Works fine on my Galaxy Tab, but I cannot get the mobile version on my Blackberry to work so standard view only. I hardly ever use my BB forbforums though, so not really an issue.

I have a vision of the future, and it involves a canal boat, and a LOCK!
