ClockworkPi unveiled the DevTerm Kit last year, as we reported at the time. Originally, the company hoped to begin fulfilling orders before April 2021, but the global semiconductor shortage prevented it from doing so. Thankfully, the DevTerm Kit will see the light of day after all, and it will start shipping this month.

Apparently, ClockworkPi will dispatch orders in batches, although specific dates remain scarce. A member of the company has clarified how ClockworkPi will distribute the DevTerm Kit though, which you can read below.

To recap, ClockworkPi has based the DevTerm Kit on a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 (CM3), with which it has paired a 6.8-inch IPS display, a 65% keyboard, a mini trackball and several gamepad buttons. The device runs on 18650 batteries and even supports a thermal printer.

The DevTerm Kit can still be ordered on ClockWorkPi's website, starting at US$219 for the RPI-CM3 series. It is unclear when new orders will begin shipping; ClockworkPi insists that the chip shortage is no longer hindering production, nor are any serious technical difficulties.
