So assuming it's here tomorrow, that's bang on the original shipping estimate I was given (which was week commencing 8/Oct/2012). Not much to complain about really. :lol:
What date did you order?
Launch day afternoon - 8th August (I think it was).
On the Farnell order it gives the date/time. Mine is listed at

Have you had the email yet? Mine was definitely earlier than that. Probably about 1pm. I could look it up if it really matters to anyone. :lol:

I haven't had the email yet but seeing your post yesterday has made me check the order status page at least ten times since then. ;)

Farnell Gertboard is here. :lol:

The packaging it bullet-proof. No chance of damage in transit. All the chips are in hard plastic surrounds. All parts individually packaged in esd-proof bags, plenty of bubble-wrap and all in a jiffy bag.

The board is identical to the one from Tandy. 11 March 2012 (well we knew it would be - they got them from Farnell).

As we know from the Pi launch, a few hours can make a big difference. :D

Hopefully you'll get your email tonight or tomorrow. :)

I ordered late on the 10th August. 10/08/12 16:56

This would be earlier than most people in Great Britian because I live in +10 GMT. Still no email from Element14 yet.

Is it only people in the UK who are getting their Gertboards shipped? Even if they ordered after others in different countries?

I have ordered mine on the afternoon of August 11th. I have been getting emails from Farnell regularly telling me that they will ship later, as of now they expect to ship it in week 51 – more than four months after ordering. I have ordered it from Germany. Anybody else got a four-month wait time?

I was actually in Germany when my Gertboard was ordered. It was ordered to be shipped to my home address in Houston. Still no action with my order.

I was in Poland when I ordered mine. I think the account you use and the delivery address make the difference though, and rightly so.

I agree, it should. It probably gets complicated with multiple international branches though.

What I meant by my last post was "where you are in the world when you order should not make a difference if there are geographical reasons for shipping units at different times. What should make a difference is where it's being delivered to." :D

exactly! There should be a clear reason why someone in the UK who ordered two days after me is receiving a Gertboard before me.

There almost certainly is, but they haven't told us what it is. I expect the allocation for Aus hasn't arrived in country yet.

Logistics is everything... Unless you are right next to where they are shipping from, they could take longer to get there. If you are in a different country, they may need to stage a block of units to get to a distribution point from which it will be sent. Some countries might have legal or customs to deal with which could make for delays... the sky might be falling... but that might only be a local condition.

My order has been shipped (ordered 09/08/2012 14:38:41),according to the mail I just got.
Looks like they are working through the uk ones in chronological order. I would think the overseas ones will be going in batches to local distribution centres

*sigh* Just rang and told mine was awaiting shipment and had been since last Friday (12th). I'll ring back later this week if I don't hear anything.

No real biggy though as I don't have any free time until the weekend anyway (and I don't want to rush anything).
