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.
