Are Pi model 2 available in Red (made and sold in China) already? If not, when will they be on sale?
A friend of mine is going there soon but is not a computer guy, I'll need to tell him exactly what to buy and where, so I need the info.
Thanks in advance!

Raspberry Pi 2Bs are already made in China and are not red. This is because of the huge demand for them. If you are a USA customer you will probably get a PRC made pi 2B.

When they are available they usually appear on Aliexpress or DX. Allegedly ;)

There is not red Pi 2 currently. And few weeks ago I contacted the red Pi distributor about Pi 2, they told me they had not a production plan yet.

If your friend know Chinese, you could tell him go to www.taobao.com to find a green Pi 2 in China.

Thanks.
How much would the Green Pis cost in China?

Will there be an official announcement when Red Pi 2 will be produced?

Sorry, ISO 4217 name is CNY.

In Chinese pronunciation, it's RenMinBi, so RMB, wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renminbi
