The links above don't work any more from the element14 site.
And I think I can't order them there ?
This has been a quieter--and somewhat slower--example of various Pi product launches. The companies aren't supposed to release anything until the official release date, but it seems like every time, some company or other jumps the gun and the RPT/RPF has to slap them down over it. Most early announcements lead to a plethora of comment threads that the Mods then have to run around sending to /dev/null. Somewhat unusually, this time, this thread, is being allowed to survive.
The reason the links don't work is that the companies have pulled the information they had out there. Once the CM3/CM3L/CM3 dev kit are officially released, RS and Farnell and their various subsidiaries will allow you to order the boards.
So...the real question comes down the the one everyone had prior to about a week ago: When? At this point, about the only reasonable guess is: Within the next week and a bit. (That is "this year".) Clearly, the boards exist. Clearly the suppliers are geared up to handle orders for the boards. We just have to wait for the RPT/RPF to "pull the trigger". Perhaps it will be a Boxing Day announcement? Or will they wait for next Tuesday so the web masters and ordering people can have a peaceful day off before the feeding frenzy hits?
And, if all that isn't enough, NEC is supposed to release their custom CM3-16 "in January". That has been kept under wraps better than the RPT CM3 boards. Pricing is going to be interesting to find out about....
