$25 PC Raspberry Pi is set to enter production soon


Remember that $25 USB Stick PC that we reported on a couple of months back? Well, it’s ready to go into Alpha production and it’s picked up geeky name to go with it – Raspberry Pi. If you’re too lazy to read back on that link, game dev/awesome human being David Braben originally came up with the concept of the ultra-low cost PC for kids and schools. The device has a 700MHz ARM11 processor, 128MB RAM, OpenGL ES 2.0, 1080p output and will run Linux. Connectivity will be handled by a USB 2.0 hub and 10/100 Ethernet controller, and will theoretically be able to use all the free tools that’s available for Linux. It also seems that there will be two variants of the low cost PC: a $25 device (Model A) with 128MB of RAM, and a $35 device (Model B) with two USB host ports and Ethernet, will come with 256MB of RAM.
