That was quick! (Pi Zero case from China)

Fri Dec 18, 2015 1:36 am

It's hard to do, but at $3.66 at least it's cheaper than the Zero itself:

I'd buy one. If I had a Pi Zero.

Adafruit has one as well. About $1.50 difference, plus postage, vs. several weeks delivery time. Pays ya money, takes ya choice.

Pimironi have been selling these since 02/12/15 which was my order date. I got the product info from another thread.

Pimoroni got a head start, must have had knowledge of at least the mechanical specs well in advance of release, what with all their pHATs available from the off as well.

It's good that there's a sort of cottage industry around Raspberry Pi's. There's people making a living out of it which is good.

I thought you were saying you got quick delivery. Then I thought that's hardly surprising. Korea is close to China.

Yes, Pimoroni ( and others) do get advanced viewing of new product to ensure cases and the like are available as quickly as possible. One of the founders of Pimoroni designed the Pi logo and is a mod on here (although doesn't stop by very often)

Of course there are people looking for low prices
but there are other people looking for sustainability, design and warmth ...
