Raspberry Pi, a fully-equipped computer for $25
The Raspberry Pi is nothing less than a revolution. A fully equipped computer the size of an iPhone for an amazing price, starting from $25. The first units will be shipped in Q2. The sites of the two global suppliers went down in the first hours due to overwhelming demand for pre-orders.
The Raspberry Pi is initially targeted as an educational device. However a low-power small fully equipped computer can do so much more. Hobbyist all over the world are working on new solutions.
Expect new solutions for consumers and the enterprise that will incorporate the Raspberry Pi. From home automation, think: “a server in every home”, to industrial use. Machine-to-Machine – M2M – solutions will be given a big boost.
Operators should look into offering industrial solutions whereby thousands of Raspberry Pi’s need to be monitored, remotely upgraded and administered.
