There were 700 in the first batch for each distributor. There were supposed to be 800. The is 4000 for each in the second batch. I am guessing these are the 5/29 batch, then the rest are supposed to be continuous production. That appears to be starting, delivery date as of 6/18. Mine is at that date also.

Got an email like a week or two ago, said i will get it June 18th or 19th, ordered on Feb 29, weird because my friend ordered it the same day and he got an email which says he will get it around May 29th.

Just goes to show there were a LOT of orders there on the 29th of Feb.

Basically the speculation here is:

Those of us who are in the next 4000 in order (or rather newarks allocation of the remaining 4000 from the Farnell half of the remaining 8000 original production) get it at the end of May. If you're anything past that cutoff, you're probably waiting until Mid June as they ramp up the production.

So, person A ordering on Feb 29th @ 9am EDT might have squeaked in under the cutoff. Person B ordering on Feb29th @ 9:05am EDT might have been just a little too late and has to wait for the first Farnell produced ones to come off the line.

Just the way it goes gang.

I ordered on March 4th and I'm still waiting for latest e-mail.  I guess I'll need to ping them if I don't hear something soon.  My order is still pending at newark.com and still lists August (as expected).  It would be nice to get it before European Pi Day 22/7

My Newark ship date recently updated to 18 June to match their recent email. Yesterday it updated to 29 May. Starting to get my hopes up.

Congrats, mine is still 18 June, but I didn't order til 15 March, so I can't complain. I ordered it as a backup in case my earlier, Allied Electronics order got messed up.
Good thing, too, as I ordered from Allied on 3 March and still not one update... still "Pending".

Well Newark just changed my ship date from 29 May to 8 June.
They are moving the wrong direction...

Checked again today - Newark moved my date again - from 8 June to 18 June. Moving dates in is always acceptable - moving dates out a week at a time is a death by 1000 knives...
Would sure like to understand their rational.
