Is this possibly the most thinly veiled delivery of bad news I’ve ever seen?
I’m glad you asked because yes it absolutely is… (emphasis mine)
Breakthroughs. Exhilarating, but rarely without hiccups.
A few days ago [12 days ago actually Farnell!], the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced a small manufacturing delay. A component in the Pi is being reinstalled. In the grand scheme it’s small potatoes – but we know it’s frustrating for Farnell element14 fans and customers.
Congratulations – Farnell element14 will deliver your Pi to you around early May.
We’re a proud partner of the Pi, and the sense of adventure it’s bringing to the tech community. We’ve all come to feel part of the Foundation’s big project to bring computing to all. Online, the response has been superb.
Thanks for your patience and understanding so far. Enjoy your Pi.
