What is the best way to order rev C1 today, without receiving an older rev? I would like to start developing on rev C1 right away.

Best regards,
-Robin

Hi,

Over the course of the past several weeks most major distributors carried zero stock of the WBDUAL and WBQUAD.

Fresh (REV C1) stock has been added to their stock level in the past several days or will be added in the week to come.

WBQUAD at the major distributors are REV C1 already.
WBDUAL most distributors are out of stock at the moment. Their next shipment is REV C1.

There is no plan to update WBSOLO to REV C1. Reason is that the major difference is on the WiFi/Bluetooth chip and this part is not populated on the WBSOLO.

Thanks for the updates!

What about the HDMI EDID issue? I am not sure, but is this hardware related or could it be solved by software?

Oh, btw, the software package download has been updated on the homepage.
It now contains firmwares for both wifi/bluetooth chips, and the documents the process how to load the bt firmware.

Thanks for the update!

It seems like all four US sellers are out of stock. Is this because of the shipment of the new revision?

Likely, but you have the causal connection kinda reversed :D

We had to design the new revision on a *very* short notice since we ran into problems with the old wifi chip availability.
This also caused a short halt in production of wb Q/DL -- that might have caused temporary shortages.

Happened to step by the factory yesterday, and they were making wb quads and shipping them as fast as they could. So I would expect them to be re-stocked quite soon.

@graffitici,

Right now, the Quads are in stock at most distributors (except Future Electronics). The Duals are out of stock.

All major distributors have Wandboard Dual's in transit at the moment in large quantities. With a bit of luck they are available for immediate shipment before the weekend. Otherwise they certainly will early next week.

Wandboard Quad's are in stock with all distributors (some distributors have the units arriving today/tomorrow).

WBQUAD's shown in stock are REV C1. The WBDUAL's in transit are REV C1 as well.
