You'll Have to Wait Just a Tad Longer as Raspberry Pi Shipping Has Been Put on Temporary Hold

By Sam Gibbs on at

Bad news for those champing at the bit to get their mitts on the Raspberry Pi – both Element 14 and RS are waiting on CE mark certification before they ship their inventory of Pis to customers causing a further delay on orders.

The good news is that 2,000 boards arrived in Britain on Monday and the Foundation are working flat-out to get all the boards certified and marked, so hopefully it won’t be too long before they ship. No firm dates for certification and therefore shipping are available at the moment so you’ll have to amuse yourselves with a couple of Linux distros and our boot video for the time being.
