My order is around the 122k number, therefore it should arrive by October.
Nevertheless, I'm afraid of many things:
1. There isn't a proof that RS is keeping their word (said by liz in the topic linked ITT) about shipping to Brazil via postal service (Royal Mail). We just had an announcement from liz last month, without updates both from RPi Foundation and RS Components.
2. There isn't an announcement public (that is, in a easily visible place like a sticky or a blog post) regarding DHL. They charge extra prices worldwide (extra costs from US$3 to US$50 depending on the country). In Brazil normally they'll charge an extra US$35, even though you payed the shipping to RS, eBay, Queen Elizabeth II or to Mr. Sauron, DHL CEO. They will charge you, DHL likes to take your money. A Google query will get you this fact. I don't know about UPS/FedEx, but it seems that UPS charges even more in Brazil. For FedEx, it's mixed. Some people says that they charge an extra fee, however I received ~10 packages from Texas Instruments in USA from FedEx and I was never charged. The package costs were from US$5 to US$49.95.
3. The mailing system from RS is largely... faulty, to say the best. Many people are complaining and there aren't any answers. I know that they got an overwhelming quantity of people asking for RPis, but if that's the case, put someone here in the forums to do that.
4. There are also people complaining about faulty RPis or even empty packages. This isn't the issue, the issue is the lack of quality control (while testing and packaging) and the lack of answer. There are people waiting 4 months for a RPi, and receive a cardboard box with foam and air. Or something that just doesn't works. Then as they live overseas or just away from UK (Americas, Australia, Asia or even Eastern Europe) they need to wait more 1 month at best for the package to arrive in RS, more 2 weeks so they can test and more an unknown time so you can get another RPi. That is, if their support was good.
I know that it can sound like a flamebait or something like that, but that wasn't my intention. Many people here - just like me - just want to have a RPi in our hands to be happily working with them and then ordering more, getting people around us to know, etc. We would love more support from the suppliers, honestly. I know that you're doing your best with them, as well as the community, the volunteer moderators and etc. However, we would enjoy more answers about what is happening or what will happen, as the current situation is far from perfect, and we know that these issues are coming from the suppliers.
