Hi – as trailed in the last posts on the Update 4 thread, we’ve been working with Broadcom and our manufacturing partners to tie down production and shipping schedules for the rest of the year. The new table showing the indicative despatch schedule for orders placed on the RS Raspberry Pi Store is attached below this post and is also on our updated FAQS at http://uk.rs-online.com/web/generalDisp ... s#Delivery
What this means is:
• New shipments have commenced today for the first batch of Raspberry Pi orders highlighted in the table
• All orders received to-date should be despatched by mid-December latest (including those placed on the main RS websites and Allied websites)
• We are currently forecasting that we will have Raspberry Pi’s in stock (have stock ready for ordering and immediate despatch) from w.c. 17 December
We’re also working with our shipping partners to try to ensure all orders are despatched ahead of last postage dates for Christmas, which may require some orders to be sent out differently to the dates indicated. This is expected to be a small percentage of the overall orders due to be despatched, so will not affect the full schedule.
In the meantime, we’re continuing to work to improve the service level for enquiries sent into the Raspberry Pi inbox. We’re very sorry for the delays people have faced in getting a response to their email enquiry, and this is being addressed with more people now working on the inbox to provide a better service.
We’ll be back on this thread to answer questions next week (we can’t reply to every individual question so please look out for general posts by the RS team).
Thanks again for your patience
