Re: Device Availability?

Tue Jan 24, 2012 3:34 pm

Hi Guys,

Extremely exciting technology - can't wait to get my hands on one. I watched a video stating the devices are now available and are undergoing some internal testing. Does anyone know when the devices will go on sale, and will they be sold through the Shop on this site?

I have a sneaky suspicion there are more developers than devices, so if anyone from Raspberry Pi HQ is reading, do you have a twitter account I can subscribe to so I can be one of the first to buy the device

Just want to add the Pi is an amazing idea, and getting it into schools is a master stroke. The second age of Britsoft is upon us!

Can't wait,

Lee Bamber

There's no sales date yet, and when it happens, everyone on the mailing list will get an email. Sales will only be through the shop on the site, one Pi per postal address.

People asking when they are going to be on sale (or for requesting the name of the raspberry Twitter account) should be put to the back of the purchasing queue. Cleary they are too lazy to read the forum or scroll down a few pixels on the home page to notice the twit feed.
