BBC delays launch of Micro Bit again

Thursday 21 January 2016 | 11:01 CET | News
The BBC has delayed the launch of the Micro Bit computer again, reports BBC News. It had originally planned to give the tiny computers to schoolchildren from October 2015 but was forced to delay this to end-2015 after a problem with the power supply. However, the BBC confirmed at the recent Bett education trade show in London that the timetable had been delayed again. The BBC said it was looking to deliver the hardware unit by end of the current term.
