HubPiWi Blue kickstarter shipping update
We have great news today! We received our first batch of 200 HubPiWi Blue on 11/23/2016 and we tested and found it to be as expected. There was minor things during manufacturing as the Bill of Materials incorrectly mentioned the size of one of the components as 0201 size in place of 0603. We will not go into the details of these - the good news is that it is all working and that is all we care now.
Usually we would have been enjoying the Thanksgiving vacation, we kept ourselve busy, packing the HubPiWi Blue for Friday 11/25/2016 shipping. We have packaged all the Early Backer rewards and they will ship tomorrow. The US shipments should start arriving early next week. The European backer will need a wait a bit longer.
Right after the early backer, the next lot will be shipped out on Saturday. This will cover first 200 backers.
We have also ordered the build of the next batch of 1300 HubPiWi blue. These will ship from our manufacturer's site by Dec 5, 2016. We expect to ship every one in US by 2nd week of December. International backer should expect 1 to 2 weeks more.
We will also be writing another blog about the Software update required to make the HubPiWi Blue working. Stay tuned. In the meantime here is the timeline
