Hi all! Since many of you have been asking for updates recently, here’s the scoop:
- Not much has changed since our last post. This is good news! The times listed in that previous post are still valid, and the minor delay we in production we mentioned was resolved as expected.
- Seeed has produced the first 95 boards and shipped them to us. We’re doing a final check over on these boards, and then we’re sending them to our fulfillment house to begin shipping out to you (as early as next week).
- Unless you’re one of the lucky first 95, everything is waiting on Chinese New Year to end - production resumes on February 14. At that point, Seeed will finish building the boards, ship the remaining quantity for the USA orders to our fulfillment house, and begin sending out all other orders directly to you from China.
Frequently asked questions
When will I get my order?
It’s tough to predict exactly, but you will receive an email with a tracking number when your order is put in the mail. For the majority of backers, your Tessel will arrive some day in March.
Any update on shipping to X country?
Same answer as above. The only difference for orders to non-USA addresses is that they will be shipped to you directly from Seeed in China. You will still get an email with tracking information when your order ships.
What can I do with my Tessel 2 when it arrives?
Great question, fictional backer - glad you asked! Check out the sidebar on the Tessel 2 Start Experience for a menu of great tutorials you can browse while you wait for your Tessel to arrive.
All the best,
The Tessel Team
