Re: The current state of delivery

While waiting for getting a chance to order a Rasperry PI, I am wondering, if anyone has been able to order (in fear of I might not be one of the lucky ones)

After 2-3 days i got an e-mail from Farnell, that i would be contacted when ordering was possible. Am I out of the list of the first 10.000 or is everybody  else also waiting?

You're out.  Mine is slated for delivery April 4th.  The last I heard, there were over 200,000 people trying for the first 10,000.  I think if register now, you might get one in June or July.

As you have had an email from Farnell, you are in the system, somewhere!

It is worth checking your spam folders as some people have found stuff there.

What date did you contact Farnell?

I signed up at the release day. I last hard from them for 7 days ago.

I have checked my spam folders - nothing must go wrong.

One of my friends has signed up at RS, and has not heard anything other than he has to wait for an e-mail from them to.

Yup. That's standard. You've had an email from them so you are in the queue. You just need to keep checking your inbox, and spam box just in case one slipped through.

I woke up to find this in my inbox :



Clicking on the link took me to web page



So I'm in the first batch of RS registrations. What does this actually mean though?

You will get an email telling you "We've Held Your Place in Line!" and you can purchase it. I originally got June 31st as a delivery date, but I got pushed back to April 10th. The companies are going fast as they can! Express interest ASAP and you'll get on the list. Quick, before the other 20,000 get all the good spots!

007jaws please re-read that page.

that is showing you what the different order status definitions are ...

you will probably see above it something like :-

Order date | Customer Ordername / number | Number of lines | number of lines filled | Order total | Order Status | Order Confrontation number | Order source

29th Feb | 29/02/2012 08:19 | 1 | 0 | £26.55 | *Processing* | xxxx | internet

*Processing* <- that is the bit that should say Complete [hahaha]

Hi thanks for this info, i did later get an invoice with an estimated date so i assume the invoice is the actual order and shows i paid for it e.t.c.

@ Rattus, yes there is an order number, status reads: back order, i was just a little worried that under my Order History it had these terms in that specific order, anyway thanks to all for explaining what they are:)

Cheers
