Finally Picos with Headers already attached, and a WiFi option. The 3 new members of the Pico family are Pico H, and Pico W both available now, and Pico HW in August.

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.

The Pico WiFi is already sold out from one of the places I normally buy from. Otherwise I'd pick one up.

I purchased 3 of them a couple of months ago, and have yet to get around to soldering them up - I need to order a 3rd hand with a massive magnifier first πŸ™‚

@frogandtoad I use several pieces of perf board then just stick the headers in and the board on top. Works great.

It's still in stock at Pimoroni, I ordered one (which is the maximum they allow) yesterday, and it is already shipped.

Β I also have a pre-order order placed at CanaKit, they didn't seem to have a limit, so I ordered 4. However, I see they are sold out of pre-orders now.

When a new Pi board goes on the market you need to act fast LOL!

I suspect that once the initial rush dies down these will be a lot easier to get than the other Pi boards are, there is no shortage of RP2040 chips.

Of course, I plan to do a video about this ASAP! I expect the one from Pimoroni by the end of next week at the latest.Β  The ones from CanaKit don't ship until July 6.

As I said, you need to be fast - it was still available when I originally posted.Β  I'm sure that in a few weeks you'll be able to get them everywhere.

Shipping was Β£10.00 GBP, twice the cost of the Pico W, however I also had another Β£37.50 GBP item on the order as well.Β  You can get shipping for half that if you don't want tracking.
