So... it's just a preorder...

Raspberry Pi DayOne, 10.000 board to sell? Maybe no... at 06.00 GTM was already in the rs-online.com and in the uk.farnell.com and Raspberry Pi was in the sell list... yes but when i click on "add to cart" sites says something like: "cannot add to cart, cannot find prices". After 2 mins both sites was down for heavy load...
FFFFFFruuuuuuu, ok, no problem, i have a friend that work for RS, i call him immediately (06.15 GTM) begging him to put 1 board apart for me... He laugh at me and he say: "really you think i can do that? oh well.. we haven't Raspberry Pi yet, we are just currently only gathering info about customers interested in the product, which will be 'on sale from 13/03, the date when we will be contacted to purchase the item." Oh... so... ok... call me when you have some news, thanks!

Nice way to advertise the product, all up at 0600h GTM, only 10k board, 1 per person etcetc.. just hype, no board...
