I know there are probably complications but how hard can it be to produce a load of kits and ship them to the UK?

this is beyond ridiculous now... the only way to get this in europe is through ebay at a conveniently inflated price by US sellers.

we're more than half a year after US release.

would love to know what on earth is taking so long for EU/UK release

To be honest in my opinion google does not care. I mean 1.1 of the aiy kit was released ages go.
Now they seem to be concentrating on the Edge TPU & USB. Google like to push the beyond the norm.
If something does not meet their criteria they drop it, like many of their other projects.

If they were going to release it they would have given an estimation. ?

We have all been left in the dark about this. Originally it was said to be Easter but that was almost half a year ago now. Judging by the fact more distributors are selling the Vision Kit (for example recently Adafruit), the next stage should be getting them to the UK. Wouldn't be surprised if Pimoroni or another UK Pi Shop are in contact with Google over this. It's possible they are already on their way over (I doubt it though).

I got a bit excited about the Edge TPU and USB then I realised us people in the UK probably won't get it for years!

Unfortunately a large company like Google doesn't have the means to produce and distribute goods like the small Raspberry Pi company.

FOUND IT! https://coolcomponents.co.uk/collection ... ro-wh-v1-1 . Although it is at a rather high price.
