Raspberry Pi to ship before the end of 2011

Things are looking for the production of the Raspberry Pi as the foundation has announced that the alpha board has been sent to the manufacturer.  All the technical mumbo-jumbo aside, the possibility of a $25 personal computer is being realized.  The foundation plans to release two versions of the device, one with lower specs (128MB of RAM) for $25 and one with slightly higher specs for around $30-35.

The foundation also intends to distribute the devices worldwide, which could mean great opportunities for schools and organizations in lesser-developed countries and those with tight technology education budgets.  Looking forward to updates on this project in the near future.
