Hello Friedrich Mäckle,
Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Joule™ Compute Module.
We want to apologize for the issues you had requesting this information.
You can find any Joule Module Module available in this link: http://www.intel.com/buy/us/en/catalog/emergingtechnologies/makerplatforms. You will find in the link provided all the information related to prices, availability and vendors.
About the future plans, we can't give details about them, but we can assure you that we always try our best to improve our products and keep them updated.
Regarding your last topic, we are not sure what do you mean with custom splash screen, but all documentation available about the Intel Joule is in the site: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/joule, https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-joule-getting-started
I hope you find this information helpful.
Have a nice day.
thank you for your feedback, first time i got an answer ;-)
I did not know that link to the vendors page, but we are planning to buy hundreds of joule devices and it is not likely that we buy them e.g. on Amazon. Even Mouser stocks only 60 devices.
It would be great if we could get a Intel sales person to talk to us.
The documentation is quite good, but in the end we will need to talk to an Intel engineer, as we are getting to the first things not available through documentation.
Would you be able to get us a direct contact at Intel we can talk to about buying devices and also some technical questions on the Joule module?
