I have not found any other seller for Freeduino/Arduino in India. Buying from US/UK is much more expensive because of shipping charges and customs duty imposed by the Indian Govt.

Now it's available at http://www.deccanrobots.com/ListProducts.asp?catID=11&type=Arduino---Freeduino

Also there are couple of others...

Since you mention earthshine I'll say that I ordered some kit on 28 May and haven't heard anything since (my paymeny went but my order hasn't been processed).

MC Mike hasn't been online here this month, so I guess he's on holiday or something. It's a relief to see hairlocks had a similar experience, I was getting a little worried at the lack of response.

edit: I've got home to find an email telling me my order has been shipped smiley

Hi, just wanted to add that I ordered my kit from Earthshine and received it in pretty good time. Looks like a good kit, I just need some time learn how to use it now!

SparkFun has updated their kit.  It's now called the SparkFun Inventor's Kit.

After wading through your articles and thinking a lot more about this than I should be, this is the one I went with.  I like the idea of the bigger breadboard and the parts list seems decent.

The inventors kit looks cool but pretty pricey...perhaps they should've use fritzing for the overlays. Soon i will post a video with our kit laid out.

For anyone interested/waiting, I'm sorry I haven't gotten this done yet. I've had work and a number of personal projects that have been getting in the way. Also, I'm trying to find a strong format for presenting the information that's really readable.

At the moment, the list is in table form, with collapsible review sections and nice fixed scrollable sections so it's actually readable.

Anyway, I promise it's on the way. smiley

That sparkfun one looks as if it's an american version of the British oomlout starter kit.

It's what I started with, it's has a good range of bits and is great at telling you how to get stuff working but doesn't really cover why.

I ordered the  Earthshine kit because I liked the book and wanted the parts to go with their manual. They give you a great assortment for the money and sent a LCD instead of a UK power supply since I am in the USA.

Cutedigi also has a starter kit for $55. I ordered a few parts from them.

Yes, it is essentially the oomlout kit.  The exact phrase on the Sparkfun site is: "On top of that, we've joined forces with Oomlout to offer a small booklet to get you started"

Very detailed comparison, the price is really quite a big difference.
Good work man
