Anyone still waiting after registering interest on release?

Wed Jun 06, 2012 11:42 am

I am from the UK.
I registered an interest at around 11AM on the day of release, ordered around 3-4 weeks ago and have received no news since.

Is anyone else in the same boat as me? Or have I just fallen through the cracks somewhere...

Yes, I am. I registered around 9 - 9:30am with RS and have been receiving their email updates. As far as I understand the first come-first serve isn't really working that well. So at the moment I'm not too worried.

RS isn't far from me I wonder if they'd mind me turning up on their door with a wad of cash :D

I registered interest with RS Online at about 15 minutes after the initial announcement. I have received the email updates, so they certainly have me on record. I have received no invitation to place an order order.

I am a patient person, but I would be lying if I said I was happy with the situation.

I ordered two weeks ago after waiting over two months. A friend of mine has ordered and got three delivered already.

I'm very disappointed on how it was all handled.

Worst part: it was to be used at college.

Thanks Raspberry Pi Foundation.

I have a confirmed back order from around 11.15am on the day of release, and I'm told end of June at the earliest!

I'd email farnell / rs and ask them ...
I registered interest on Beb 29 about 11am for RS and have had that delivered [my farnell one came ages ago]
