Raspberry Pi Shipping Update, more pre-orders very soon

by Rob Zwetsloot

Still waiting for news on your Raspberry Pi? You shouldn’t have to wait much longer, as element14 announces they will update all pre-order customers shortly

The Raspberry Pi has become an elusive piece of kit, with only a few thousand out in the wild and 300,000 pre-orders still to ship. And while there has been little communication with those that have pre-ordered, this will soon change as element14 has announced that by the end of next week, all 110,000 of their customers will be told when they should receive their Raspberry Pi. However, they should all receive them no later than the end of June.

And that’s not all, folks still wanting to get their hands on one of the coveted RasPis may be contacted over the next five days to place a pre-order with element14, with people who have registered an interest in the system on the e14 website given priority. 70,000 units will be up for pre-order, and they will apparently ship sometime in July or August.

If you can’t wait then there are a few people on eBay who would be happy to sell you one…just be prepared to pay the equivalent of mid-range PC.
