Berg's Little Printer delayed - this is the hard part

The Berg Little Printer, Social Media’s “most favorite printer ever”, has hit a delay in shipments. Through emails and a blog post the London-based firm explained some of the issues in the way of shipping the product that was announced with such a splash late in 2011. (See “Lessons From the Little Printer That Went Viral”)

It was then over a half-year of waiting, leading to Berg’s announcement that they were taking pre-orders (see Little Printer BeginsPre-Order Phase – Social Media’s Most Favorite Printer Ever?”, ). On getting the word, I immediately ordered one, for expected delivery in October. But alas, reality set in. From Berg’s email:

Following extended rounds of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing, we are regretfully unable meet the original shipping date of mid-October, and now expect to ship the first run in the last week of November. We are very sorry for this significant delay.

I’m still on the pre-order list, and am excited to get the product, and will try not to get impatient. Having worked on the design/development side for many years, I know how it goes!
