Great news! 250.000 in nine weeks! Congrats Rpi foundation!

More distributors in more continents! More demand hopefully to keep production capacity fully occupied! Sill one per order (per day?).

I see the original Zero not available everywhere alas. It is in the Netherlands (Kiwi) Also a great device for projects with lower power consumption and even lower price

Great!

I have three or four because I pick one up from Microcenter whenever I'm around, but it's great that the reach is being extended.
There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't.

You've got seven and a half thousand? Do you own Microcentre?

Four of the six retailers of the Pi0 on ThePiLocator show the Pi0 in stock. Where are you looking that you can't find any?

It looks like Dr. Upton is making good on his intent to produce 100K Pi0Ws per month.

Using them to wallpaper the living room. Next winter I figure I can mine bitcoins, analyze SETI data, crack encryption keys and keep warm.
