Raspberry Pi delayed again

The R270 credit card sized computer has been delayed once again

Consumers will have to wait even longer for their Raspberry Pi computers after distributors refuse to sell the device without proper certification.

The device, which saw pre-orders sell out within a single day, was previously delayed due to a manufacturing error that saw the incorrect Ethernet adapter being installed onto the boards.

Now two U.K. retail partners are refusing to distribute the device until it gets a “CE” marking, showing that the manufacturer has complied with European regulations.

The Raspberry Pi team did not previously seek approval for the device, because they believed it was not a “finished end product”, and thus did not need the certification.

The foundation says that the first 2,000 boards will arrive in the U.K. on 2 April, and will be CE certified as soon as possible.
