From the initial batch of Raspberry Pi’s we received on Friday, we shipped the UK and European ones to customer immediatally and shipped a portion to our Distribution Centres in the USA and Australia, and Asia. They will then ship them directly to customers so expect them to start arriving mid next week (i’m from element14!)

element14 Distribution Centres in Asia will receive them by Tuesday and will then start shipping to customers across the region including China.

There are 2 US distributors – Newark element14 are taking orders now though delivery times are currently out to the summer we expect this to improve as we ramp up production now. The other distributor is allied but can’t comment on their deliveries you’d need to check with them.
