    Registered an interest at 6 am with RS only to be told by raspberrypi Twitter that is not the right page. Had one in the basket at Farnel and then the server bombed. What a morning!!

    Allegedly the two staff at RS at 6 had no knowledge of the device, no stock number and were waiting
    for management to come in!

    If you registered an interest with RS, RaspberryPi has tweeted they will be in touch at the end of the week

    https://twitter.com/#!/Raspberry_Pi/...67874416713728

    So did anyone get one?

    BBC News - The Raspberry Pi £22 computer goes on general sale

    It must have been upgraded as according to this article "Initially the £22 model of the Pi, which includes wifi, will be offered for sale."

    Oops Mr BBC!

    I went on both Farnell and RS at 6:30. No joy! lol Ah well wait for batch 2
    I wanted to download the emulator, but thats not available on the site. Does anyone have a copy they could put somewhere I could get to?
    I have already been asked about the pi's and I wanted to show SMT what it is and can do.]
    Thanks

    They've corrected it. I can't believe they got it wrong. It was one of the most talked about things - "Oh please give it Wifi" - "No, it'll bump the price up". Came up virtually every day on their forums.

    Wut. All you need is something like this.

    There has been a hardware change as far as we can gather with the RAM increased to 256MB. Once we get conformation of any/all changes we'll let you know. Watch the front page today for a quick article and some brand new datasheets direct from the RP community.
