Hey forum,

Have been looking to purchase a LattePanda alpha for personal use. However, I'm on the DFrobot site and it only shows that they are (Pre-order) without a confirmed delivery date.
Now that the kickstarter project is all backed and over, I'm wondering: is there a solid date on the actual release? If i pre-order now, when will I get the actual product?

Cheers,
G

Dear Gly,

Thanks for keeping an eye on our new models. All team members are focusing on push the new product delivery schedule...Now we will start to ship products to Kickstarter backers and pre-order from this month. Big batch products will be ready next month. I think if you place pre-order from our channels, you will be get them next month. And the mass production products will be available from global channels at Oct.

Feel free to let me know if you have further question.
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

I pre-ordered one a week ago. I'm constantly looking around for information. There are a few "updates" that I can't see on there since I'm not a backer. It would be great to see more content showing an actual unit, even a pre-production unit. This could be simple stuff like benchmarks, other PCI-E card's hooked up through M.2, showing off UEFI screens, etc. It would be great if there were updates about actual ship dates and progress. While I know everyone must be busy, there is very little new information here, official twitter, and official youtube.

I can't wait to share some photos of LattePanda Alpha sample with you here. This is the first batch limited LattePanda Alpha production version product!
I think more and more youtube and reviewer will post info about PCI E and benchmarks working on the real device at the end of this month. The production team is pushing themselves a lot to make mass production batch ready for the global users!!!! Thanks for your great support!

Holy cow, that's awesome, this is the first actual picture of a complete product that isn't a render. I also wanted to point out that I'm willing to be a moderator here if you wanted help cleaning up spam posts, it seems to be a problem.

Is it possible to give an approximate time when the Alpha will be delivered to the IGG backers?

Many thanks in advance!

I still wish there was a way to order one in the Uk but there's no availability for it.

I think our global distributor DFRobot.com can manage to ship products to UK within 3-5 days. And in EU market, RS-online always be the top distributor for our product line. You can keep an eye on their distribution! ;)

Shows a few more games running on it, I believe Korean this time as well.

When are DFRobot orders expected to be fulfilled?
