Web Platform: Kits shipped, assembled boards next week

Posted on Wednesday, January 13th, 2010 in web platforms by Ian

Seeed Studio just sent an update on the web platform. The kit version has been shipped, you should receive your tracking information shortly if you haven’t already. The assembled version will ship next week. Albert, Seeed’s lead engineer, is currently programming and testing the assembled boards. The good news is that airmail shipping times should return to normal, more on that in a second.

We apologize for the delay. We’re committed to reducing the preorder wait time as much as possible. We’ve begun coordinating with Seeed to add key parts to their monthly bill of materials so they’re ready when a preorder starts. We’ve also started designing¬† projects with parts availability in mind, instead of using whatever is in our parts box.

Thank you for tolerating the delays as we get the kinks worked out of this system. Most importantly, we don’t want to hold you hostage, please contact Seeed for a refund if you’d like to cancel your order.
