What's new with the BBC micro:bit?    Micro:bit v.2 has been released on 13 Oct!!   Check the Micro:bit Foundation website for all details.       

Availability - Micro:bit Foundation Headquarters in the UK has officially advised that the new micro:bit will be available globally in late November 2020. However, the official distribution channel for Hong Kong advised that it will be from January 2021 onwards. As such, we are not sure of the accurate availability date for now.   As an official micro:bit reseller, we will know very soon the realistic date when the new micro:bit can land in Hong Kong on a larger scale.  

Important - There is no rush at all, plenty of stock, and pre-order is just unnecessary. Do expect very steady and reliable supply, like how the current micro:bits are available - always plenty of supply! 

Pricing  -   more or less the same as the current version, or probably slightly lower, based  on the latest pricing information from the official micro:bit global distribution team.    Again, no urgency to pre-order.   When the stock actually arrives, we may run some special offers.    

 

Explanation videos - we find the following 2 videos clear and useful, on top of the information from the official website. So, do take a look and get yourself up-to-date.  Nothing alarming!!
