My shipping date was moved UP

Thu Jul 12, 2012 7:11 pm

I ordered my Pi from Newark Element 14 on July 09, they originally placed the shipping date at August 16, 2012.. They moved it up to July 23rd 2012. Anyone else get this?! Totally freaked out o:

That was pretty common in the later stages of the initial rush. After the overly enthusiastic, short deliver times became obviously impractical, Farnell moved all delivery projections to mid-August and then, as machines became available and production rates stabilized and increased, sent out new, shorter delivery estimates.

The ones you report are quite favorable and appear pretty consistent with the current notice on the Element 14 (US subsidiary) web site stating that general ordering will open up "mid-July," thus giving some hope that this will happen next week...

I ordered on May 2nd. It showed an expected ship date of Aug 16th ever since. But today it changed to Jul.16th.

I find it odd that I got moved up considering how recently I had just ordered the Pi. :shock:
