Gertboard for US customers: from Newark? or someplace else?

Tue Oct 23, 2012 5:48 pm

Can we get the latest on the availability of this board for US customers? I have seen some other posts that say it is available from Newark, and others say it is not.

I have seen the link to Gert's forum posting, but that still did not clear it up.

I just got an e-mail from Newark saying it is not. Does anyone know where we can get it?

"Hi Mike,

Due to overwhelming popularity, we have sold out and will no longer be accepting orders. However, we will have additional new and exclusive products coming very soon. We will be announcing the details as soon as they become available on the element14 community's Raspberry Pi group which can be found

I ordered from on 10/01 and my current delivery date is November 29. They must have gotten a hell of a lot of orders because it no longer seems possible to order them from newark. I'm not sure what the holdup is because I don't think any of the parts are hard to get. People in the UK seem to have been able to get them for a while now. I had to wait months to get my first-batch PI, now two months for a gertboard. If it's available more quickly elsewhere in the U.S., please let us know!
