So where now

Mon Nov 12, 2012 4:24 pm

I keep watching this forum to see if there will be some sort of announcement about when the Gertboard will become available again, and in which format. I didn't order one, thought about it for a bit, then bamm they were discontinued.

I'm not sure I need one, but I would like one. I'm not sure I want to solder it all up, but I'd like to have the opportunity to try.

I know Gert is at a show this week, but it would be good to have some idea of when these issues are likely to get resolved.

Farnell will be releasing fully built up boards in the next few weeks. The kit has been discontinued, we believe due to its expense in comparison.

That's good news! I'm sure more than a few people were put off by the prospect of doing their own soldering.

Will this be available from Newark/Element 14 as well?
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.

Thanks - I just stumbled upon this myself this morning. I've registered!

What great timing for my post though :D
