Just got an email today from Element 14 stating that Raspberry Pis are available for pre-order again. I just ordered one myself to make sure it wasn’t an April fools day gag. Now is your chance to get in on the 2000 manufactured Raspberry Pi computers that are sitting around waiting to be deployed. They will revolutionize the way we entertain ourselves, for the costs of around $44 (shipped to the U.S.) for the network enabled model B. For more information on what I’m talking about view my other Blog post here: http://bit.ly/H8YnKv
Here is the email I received:
“The wait for Pi is (nearly) over. The Pi began its journey as a crowdsourced community project. Given the volumes involved and the demographic mix of likely users, the development board exemption on compliance testing is not applicable. As a result, even the first uncased developer units of Raspberry Pi will require a CE (compliance tested) mark prior to distribution in the EU.
We’re supporting the Raspberry Pi Foundation in doing everything possible to bring the Pi to the world as quickly as possible, and minimize any further delay.
