Pi2Go Update – 26th August 2014
Just a quick update covering price revision (sorry), availability (hurrah!), some news and a little teaser (hehe)
Having looked closely at the price we planned to sell the Pi2Go-Lite at it wasn’t viable for a long-term business. Therefore the release price has been revised to £35.95+VAT
This still represents great value and you get an awful lot of bot for your money.
We have not changed the price of the full Pi2Go which remains at £60.00+VAT
At the Cambridge Raspberry Jam on 6th September, we will have a small number of Pi2Go-Lite kits available for immediate purchase at a great one-off price. Anyone at the Raspberry Jam will be able to pick one up and take it home on the day (while stocks last).
On the day following the Cambridge Jam, the Pi2Go-Lite will be released for purchase on line – link for purchase will be here on www.pi2go.co.uk
Also, the full Pi2Go (subject to some test results) will be available for pre-order with expected delivery end-September or early October.
We have sent the Pi2Go for CE testing. This is important and we must pass these tests before we can claim CE compliance. If there is a problem with the testing, then we may have a delay to shipping. I’ll let you know what happens and whether we can still start taking pre-orders, as soon as I can.
The Pi2Go kits that are being released have nearly been complete. The final part was to receive the release PCBs, which arrived yesterday (Thank you DHL – delivering on a bank holiday!). They tested fine and are now being put into the kits ready for the release date in a week and a half.
There is a new feature. This does not come as standard and you will have to purchase the addon separately. Code is being written now to use the new feature in both python and ScratchGPIO. This will make the Pi2Go-Lite even more awesome, especially for PiWars! All will be revealed at the Cambridge Jam
