Ive found a new stockist that are stocking Farnell Model 2 Rev 2 boards in the UK
I found them completely by accident so ill tell my story
i originally ordered my Pi from RS (end of June 102XXX) After no communications and the order delay (which i never got any communication about from RS ) i canceled the order (7th Sept) and as may am still waiting on a Paypal fund return (14th day was to so i raised ticket with paypal and it let me)
The same day (7th Sept), i ordered from Farnell.
Today (21st) i get an email saying they couldnt process order because i used a Visa Electron card!!!!
In a mood i thought id look on ebay or Amazon for one and pay over the odds but get one as ive been waiting MONTHS......
on Amazon i found a Pi for £33 but it also had the seller which was Proto-Pic.
i did some research and found there site http://www.proto-pic.co.uk
They had one left at £30.59 Inc Vat so i ordered it and found they where based 5 miles from my house and that i could actually go pick it up instead of having it delivered
Everything went through (got several emails during the process) and i was to call the sales team to arrange collection which I did.
I called through but was an answering machine so i left a message with my number to call back.
5 mins later, the phone rings and its the sales team. the member of staff explained to me that there stock levels where updated every 15 mins on the site and unfortunately i was sniped
But that theres an order coming in on monday and they will call me when they arrive so i can go pic up
Raspberry PI at last and its a Ver 2
Thought id share this with you all who are still having issues getting your hands on a RP in the UK and there taking Visa Electron and Paypal for those interested
also carry the GPIO cables and other accessories if you have a look at there site
Roll on Monday
