With the new news that Farnell are now doing production of the v2 boards in the UK, It got me thinking where do the resellers get their production done?
I am guessing that Maplin are not producting themselves, and are sourcing from either Farnell or RS.
so my question, if I order from Maplin, will I get a V2 UK board, or a chineese one?
also, what other resellers are their? do they do the same as maplin?
Thanks for the enlightenment.
I'd hazard that since RS is so incompetently run that they cannot even supply single orders that there's no way that they could justify supplying another re-seller at this point. i.e. they must source from Element 14 as they seem to have figured out how to keep a steady enough stream of pi's coming such that if you're lucky you get same day shipment or at worst a week or two wait.
For people in England/Europe it'll probably be even better once Sony is up and running at full capacity...
