Possibly but it has been implied that there is an exclusive arrangement with Farnell.

I must admit that I was hoping the price would be lower; £30 / $47 USD is near twice the price of an R-Pi Model A, though that does seem to include VAT. Hopefully bare PCB's ( or cheaper alternative but compatible boards ) will be available for those who don't need the full features a GertBoard offers.

I wouldn't trust those prices - Tandy haven't spoken to Gert about this....

Hi Gert

Thanks for the clarification.

Can you give us any idea of a potential release date?

Cheers
