Re: What's the situation with DSi?

I'm really pleased about today's announcement but now it is the turn of the foundation to wait for me.

I have too many projects on the go and my wife will not be happy if I spend more money just now.

Payday though :D

Re: What's the situation with DSi?

I disagree, it does matter what they say. They may say - "actually we have given up on this idea" and I'll know to not waste my time waiting for it any longer. If they announce "we are waiting to overcome this particular hurdle..." then I might be a little more understanding. However, you are correc...

Re: What's the situation with DSi?

the lack of any statement from the foundation as to why they are delayed or when they are likely to be available is very disappointing. Even a non-committal statement would be better than no stat3ement at all (I'll regret saying that) I don't think asking for an update on status once every few month...

Re: Sense HAT availability

Would this be another product going on sale before the DSI display? :-(

Re: Any news on official Raspberry Display?

Is there any news on this yet? specifications, requirements, prices etc.

Still on track for "next quarter"? Which I hope is now THIS quarter

Thank you Gordon - I will be very disappointed if another Pi model is released beforehand though :-)

Re: DSI Screen Availability

Any chance the foundation might get this interface to market now that the B+, A+ and Pi 2 have been released?

Re: DSI Screen Availability

Guess it wasn't to be by the end of 2014 then :-(

I think I heard Eben say "... or maybe early next year" in one of his video interviews

Re: Any news on official Raspberry Display?

Me too, but I suspect that in August RS and Element 14 will only invite us to register our interest or pre-order.

Thank you James, As a programmer my brain tends to think in logic (and requirements). The blog statement was parsed and evaluated as written without any non-computational assumptions. Your earlier statement did make the pessimist in me think you might be trying to suggest some other annual boundary ...

Re: DSI Screen Availability

"this year" is 2014 so "later this year" = before the end of 2014.

Re: DSI Screen Availability

Today's blog about the compute module http://www.raspberrypi.org/compute-module-development-kits-now-available/ also announced that the DSI display interface will be available by the end of the year :D In each kit you get a Compute Module, an IO Board, adaptors to convert the CMIO board camera and d...

Re: DSI Screen Availability

At last, an announcement that the foundation is working on a DSI interface From Magpi issue 21: [MagPi] Are there any plans for new hardware in the next year – either new add on boards or any upgraded or brand new hardware for the Raspberry Pi itself? Maybe a display for the DSI connector, or someth...

Re: DSI Screen Availability

Any updates on a dedicated DSI screen or interface adapter yet? Should I just take this off my wish-list?

Re: DSI Screen Availability

Thanks James, Perhaps "When will it be available?" was a bit optimistic and I can perhaps understand the commercial reasons for not announcing specs, development progress etc. But could we at least have a statement of intent? I'm happy to wait as long as I know it will happen one day as I don't like...

DSI Screen Availability

When is the foundation's Raspberry Pi screen going to be available? I've searched the forums and found lots of information saying it can't be done yet but not any reports of when it will be available. I waited patiently for the release of gertboard - and then assembled gertboard as gertboard became ...
