They have said on several occasions that punters will not be charged until the units are dispatched.

I'd get in the queue by placing an order.  Website said it'd be May-ish when I placed the order but a confirmation expecting it to be filled sometime mid-to-end of August.  Your guess is as good as anyone's as to when it will be filled- but if you're not in the line, you might be waiting a long while for one.

if you want one then get in the queue - you'll get an email when they are going to ship etc.

I'm just getting that sinking feeling that this is a circular buffer rather than a queue..

You implement /dev/null as a circular buffer?

Makes me think of the Dr. Who episode where everyone was stuck on a highway and it took 10 years to go 2 miles.

I ordered March 13 (element14, Australian order) and was told on Monday that it won't receive my RPi until October 2012.

I'd place the order if you're happy with a 7 month wait, otherwise I'd look elsewhere (BeagleBone etc).

That would be a normal day on the M25, then.
