Raspberry Pi Sets Record Straight on $25 PC
"The 'consumer release' that Eurogamer is talking about is actually the educational release, which, as you'll be aware if you've been hanging out on our forums, will come with a kid-targeted software stack, a heap of written support materials, and a standard case," Raspberry Pi said in a blog post.
Furthermore, Raspberry Pi promised that if there's a price change, it will be for the better. "The model A will cost $25 and the model B will cost $35 (unless we change them downwards," Raspberry Pi said.
Raspberry Pi, if this is the first you're hearing of it, is a credit card sized Linux machine with a 700MHz ARM11 processor and either 256MB ($35) or 128MB ($25) of RAM. It features an HDMI port, USB 2.0, RCA video, an audio jack, SD card slot, LAN controller, and some other goodies. The GPU is capable of Blu-ray quality playback and provides OpenGL ES 2.0 and hardware-accelerated OpenVG.
