Pi Zero dropped at Adafruit?

Sat May 14, 2016 12:17 am

The Pi Zero Schedule post (viewtopic.php?f=63&t=135081) is locked for replies.

I did manage to get one Pi Zero a couple months ago from Adafruit , and I'd like another (or more). I've been checking Adafruit multiple times a day, nearly everyday, for many weeks, with no luck for stock.

But today Adafruit completely removed the Pi Zero from their shop. Of which I understand them dropping it if they rarely get any to sell.

Will there be a new US distributor for the Pi Zero?

Microcenter is a joke. They only allow for in-store purchases and no online purchases, so their supply is non-existent to anyone outside their retail store locations.

Maybe let Ameridroid become the authorized US distributor for the Pi Zero?

There is a new revision of the Pi Zero coming Real Soon Now :) so I suspect they just removed the old listing before making a new listing...

Maybe, but when the Pi3 came out, they didn't have a listing for it right away...

Does that mean there will be a blow out sale for the old Pi Zero? :lol:

For my project, the Pi Zero fits perfectly, so hopefully a new version doesn't change the size (or hopefully its smaller). This is why I am interested in the Pi Zero and not that $9 CHIP thing.

Big production of the Zero is about to hit shelves, 250k manufactured I believe. Keep an eye on the distributors (Monday I suspect).
