Raspberry Pi Off To Manufacturing

Congratulations is in order for the folks behind the Raspberry Pi. The company has finally started manufacturing the tiny $25 computers, with the first units rolling off the line by the end of the month. There are two models available, the A and B. The main difference is that the B model has more memory and an Ethernet port.

This means that the first units from the first batch will be rolling off the line at the end of January. This first batch will consist only of Model Bs, although you will be able to buy Model As later on. Details about whether we’ll wait for all 10k to come off the line before starting sales, and about what date we’ll be starting on, will come later; so that gives you something else for you to shift around nervously on your chairs about for at least another week or so.
