Just got brand new badger and to my surprise the demo software is different than the one described in the Getting Started document.
The Badger displays time & date once booted.
Just wonder what is going on? Is this really brand new Badger?
It looks like the “brand new” Badger was pre-flashed with micropython

I submitted some details about the Pimoroni products re-seller where I bought this product from using the official form on the Pimoroni website.
It would normally come pre flashed with Pimoroni’s custom Badger uf2 file.
My Tufty came pre flashed.
You can get the custom Pimoroni Badger version here, and re flash it.

It looks like the board I got was not a brand new one. The seal was broken as well.
I bought it from the official channel - Pimoroni authorized re-seller…
An update: the re-seller agreed to replace the product.
