debio - i don't know where you get the information but the plug is based on Marvell Kirkwood chip, but has lots of other parts inside.

Can you please explain how did you get to the conclusion that Marvell is to blame on the plugs' shortage?

Well. I ordered it today to send to Portugal. It will have Linux Gentoo installed.

There are now some "pictures frames" that are in fact also USB LCD Monitor that requires no power outlet.  Looking forward to test on it. Can be usefull as monitor station.

When I emailed and asked for a rough estimate of when my plug would ship, I was told that the date was pretty much entirely dependent on the arrival of Marvell's next lot shipment of hardware. Marvell is at least making the processor, and their exact specs for the other hardware and the fact that another supplier is picking up the Sheevaplug with the same components makes me reasonably certain that pretty much all the electronic components are made by Marvell.
As to whether Marvell is to blame, I doubt they expected advanced computer users to jump on the Sheevaplug bandwagon, and that problem is further compounded by the fact that this is a new CPU design, and as these forums can show, the number of plugs that were dead on arrival or died soon after is fairly high.

Ordered 10 days after you, no sign of anything yet.   Did they email you shipping confirmation?   I can't even get a email response from them...

Yes, they send you shipping confirmation when your order ships.
I sent an email to Globalscale Sales immediately after I placed my order (June 13) and got a rough estimate that my order would ship in the next few days (shortly after July 14). That estimate may be too optimistic though.
(it hasn't shipped yet)

I ordered 19/5 and although I haven't received an email yet the account page tells me that it has shipped. Try emailing them from a different address - they ignored several of my emails.

yet the account page tells me that it has shipped.
I didn't even realize there was an account page! Dark Blue on darkish grey doesn't show up well.
Mine is marked as not shipped yet.  Ordered 26 June.

My account page says "Not Yet Shipped" but received it months ago!  LOL!  But the wait was well worth it.  This has become so useful as a server, I need another few to play with.

No email, I check the account page regularly and it now says that it shipped on July 14th. No FedEx tracking number yet (still pending...)

I ordered mine around June 6th.  I didn't realize you could check on shipment status until I checked this forum (yesterday) Just prior I sent an email to Globalscale and got this reply today (I kinda wasn't expecting one, not this soon at least).  So, two month delay (I hope).  I'm glad they responded.  Yeah, it might get pushed out another couple of weeks, but I've been in this situation before where there is no reply.  I'm cautiously optimistic.  Btw, does anybody have a guess as to number of units shipped to date?

Dear Mr. ...,
