Hi Everyone,


We’re excited to report that our next shipment of 4,000 Raspberry Pi’s has now left our manufacturers in Asia and will be on their way to customers next week! We have a further 12,000 Raspberry Pi’s due to arrive by the third week of May. We will have regular volume shipments thereafter. By early next week, all 110,000 customers who have ordered with element14 - wherever you are in the world - will receive a confirmed delivery date. As previously communicated, this will be no later than the end of June for those who ordered before April 18th.


Over the next 5 days, we will invite the 70,000 hopeful customers who have already registered to place their orders.  If you place an order with us, you will have a delivery date in July or August, depending on your place in the ordering queue.


New registrations of interest received from today will need to wait a little longer for their confirmation until we have updated production and delivery information from our manufacturers. We are doing this because we want to avoid any further confusion and to make sure we give any new customers accurate delivery information when you place your order.


Thank you again for your patience – with volume manufacture now underway we hope that we will shortly be able to lift the “one per customer” order limitation on any new orders.  We will let you know as soon as we are able to do so.


Don’t forget that we have some great resources to help you get started with your Raspberry Pi. Be sure to check out our Getting Started manual, a blog on Raspberry Pi WiFi adapter testing, suggestions on possible Raspberry Pi peripherals, and our Raspberry Pi Safety Data Sheet.  


Best wishes,

Jenny and the element14team
