RASPBERRY PI LATE. AVAILABLE FROM FEBRUARY 20 - Raspberry Pi, the microPC expected to be $ 25, should be available from next February 20. Slightly behind the initial programs, who had established its marketing for January, Raspberry Pi will be on the market at 10,000 units.
Raspberry Pi could be available by the end of the month. Initially, the low-cost microPC was expected by the end of 2011. A series of problems in production forced the company to make the launch postponed to January , but this date was not met. According to the latest statements of the company by February 20, should be made ??available to the first 10,000 units of Raspberry Pi, which will “test” the market.
Raspberry Pi is a mini-computer equipped with an ARM processor-based Broadcom BCM2835low-power (here’s a. pdf of study) in combination with an operating system derived fromLinux. Despite the presence of 128 MB of SRAM memory, a card reader SD / MMC / SDIO, USB and an Ethernet port, the size of the PC are comparable to those of a USB stick. Clearly this is a particular solution, dedicated to specific market niches, but definitely flexible and versatile.
The very low cost (about 17 euros in the basic version) makes it an ideal system for those who want to have a computer that can also play video at 1080p and some video game in 3D.Probably the most interesting application is as a media center. We recall in this connection, how to install a customized copy of XBMC, said RaspBMC , Raspberry Pi makes a perfect tool for media management.
Recall also that Raspberry includes several modules including support for streaming files over your home network, the connection to Apple AirPlay , and several features for digital video recording. In short, a little has a very small price.
