And another e-mail from Farnell just arrived:
As you know, the Raspberry Pi has been required to undergo CE testing prior to sale.
We are pleased to report that the outcome of this testing has been successful, following an accelerated application jointly conducted by the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Farnell element14.
We are despatching your Raspberry Pi now, and it should arrive with you in the next few days, the week commencing Monday 16 April 2012.
Once again, thank you for being heroically patient. We hope you’ll enjoy the limitless computing potential and enjoyment the Raspberry Pi offers.
