Raspberry Pi latest Update
Welcome to the latest Raspberry Pi update from RS!
We’ve had a lot of questions about when you will be able to place orders for a Raspberry Pi from RS. When the Raspberry Pi was launched we decided not to take orders and payment up front until we knew when stock would be available and be in a position to give you accurate delivery information. With the first batch of boards due to arrive into RS warehouses soon, we’ve started to contact the people who are at the front of our queue, so they know they are first in line to get a Raspberry Pi board. They will shortly be invited to place their order on our dedicated RS Raspberry Pi store, and will be despatched to customers on a first-come, first-served basis in line with customer registrations.
As we receive delivery dates for the following batches we will contact those next in line to let them know when they can place an order. This way, you know that when you purchase your Raspberry Pi from RS, we have the stock coming shortly to fulfill your order. When placing an order for the Raspberry Pi, payment and delivery details will be taken, and we’ll let you know when you can expect to receive your Raspberry Pi. An email will then notify you when it has been despatched, along with a tracking number for you to check the status of your delivery.
Empahisis above on "they" and "you" ... so I'd guess I'm not in the 1st batch. (You have to really try hard to stay awake reading these messages to get pertinent information, eh? A simple "wait for the next batch to arrive then we will get in touch" would do quite nicely.
Thanks again for keeping this thread active as a heads-up for us spambound by email providers & dodgy return-email addresses by the majors.
