There was a thread a month back - the screen has been delayed due to EMC testing issues. Hopefully soon!

So which of "by the End of 2015" or "really soon now" is it?

Really soon by the end of 2015 probably.

Certainly going to be an interesting year!

I picked up a couple of generic hdmi adapter board + LCD panel modules to keep me going until the RPi displays show up.

The RPi display will be great as it should eliminate the hdmi-LCD adapter board nicely :) and save a bit of power as well!

Unfortunatelly it looks like it will be a DSI to LCD interface, I don't know how much power it will take, but it's not going to be a native DSI display. Also, expect no specs for the interface.

Any chance the foundation might get this interface to market now that the B+, A+ and Pi 2 have been released?

Thank you Gordon - I will be very disappointed if another Pi model is released beforehand though :-)

there was a quote from Eban somewhere yesterday [cannot find it now] that the screen has gone into limited production IIRC [and I may not - still trying to find it]

hello

can anyone let me know some basic details about the new DSI screen.

physical dimensions?
power requirement (Volts / Amps)

Just want to prepare ourselves for when the screens are available so we can hit the ground running with using it.
