HubPiWi Blue update 11/06/2016 - Bluetooth Working

November 6th, 2016

In the November 2nd Update it was indicated that the bluetooth verification was the only thing holding us from releasing the production of the HubPiWi Blue.

Today I have good news to report to the backers and supporters of HubPiWi Blue. Matthew Dippel reported that the Bluetooth is working with HubPiWi Blue !!!

Many thanks to Matt for taking the time out of his busy schedule to get the thing working !!!

We are releasing the design for manufacturing. We will be building 1000 units but it will happen in two steps. In first step we will build 200 boards - just to make sure our manufacturing process does not has any issue. We should get the first 200 lot as early as in 15 days. The early kickstarter backer should expect these in their hands before the end of this month. As soon as the first board of the 200 lot is verified, we will give go ahead to build the remaining 800 and we should expect these in one month from now.

All US backers should expect the boards by mid of Novembers. The shipping time is a bit longer for backers out of the USA ,but they should still get the boards before the Christmas Holidays kick in.

This will keep up busy through the year. If you are wondering what else will be doing before the end of the year, we would like to point you to another project - that will extend serial port console in in Raspberry Pi Zero. Stay tuned for more information. In the meantime if you have not yet ordered, wish you may like to order it here.

Thank Mattew Dippel again for the support with the kernel - You can access the details here.

We will place a binary of the updated Raspbian with support for HubPiWi Blue. Though we would like to see that this gets native support in the next update of Raspbian.
