Re: Deliver email from Farnell Export?

It"s great that Raspberry Pis will be delivered in large quantities in May. We"ve seen many people report receiving delivery date emails from Farnell, Newark and Element 14.

However, has anyone who ordered specifically with Farnell Export received a delivery email?

I have received nothing (I also check my junk folder daily) while others who ordered after me have received delivery emails stating 7th May.

So I"m wondering if it"s just me or maybe Farnell Export will send their emails soon?

Thanks

I received the following "update" on April 26 for my order placed March 3:
"New delivery dates are automatically been communicated to our customers by next week.
Apologies for this delay."
So hopefully some news soon from Farnell Export - I had enquired to Farnell UK on why I couldn"t logon to their site to check on my order, they replied that they forwarded my enquiry to Farnell Export and that"s when the penny dropped they were two separate business units with separate ordering and sites... I do have a delivery date week commencing June 4 from Element 14 Australia for an order also placed March 3, so it seems my local distributor will deliver before Farnell Export - still figure it was worth having a bet each way!

I ordered from a non-UK branch and received a mail from Farnell Export that my Pi will ship in week starting with 25th May.

I never did get an email from Farnell Export, but they did reply to an open support call and confirmed that my RasPi shipped TODAY Woohoo!

Customs permitting it should arrive sometime w/c 7th May.
