Raspberry Pi to go on sale by end of month Originally expected to be released in January, the $35 Raspberry Pi will be available by the end of the month, says the group working on it.
The Raspberry Pi is a mini-computer created by UK programmers. What makes the computer so impressive (besides its price tag) is the fact that it can play 1080p HD video with no issues. The devices are intended to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools or at home. The company is looking to promote the Python programming language, alongside Basic and C among others.

For $35 you get a 3.3-inch wide board with a 700 MHz ARM11, 256MB RAM, HDMI-out, SD card slot, a USB port, ethernet, audio jack and Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU.

The initial production run is just 10,000 units, with manufacturing finishing on February 20th.
