Hardware, Embedded Systems This morning, I experienced the nerd equivalent of a Black Friday $50 iPad sale. At 07:00 CET, the first batch of the much-anticipated Raspberry Pi went on sale, and while Raspberry Pi itself was very properly prepared, the two large international retailers actually selling the device weren't - despite warnings from Raspberry Pi about the enormous amount of traffic that would come their way, the two sites crumbled to dust within seconds. There's good news too - the cheaper model A has seen its RAM doubled at no additional cost.

There's the Pandaboard and the Pandaboard ES. They are (a lot) more expensive than the Raspberry Pi, but have a lot more goodies onboard: Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi, I/O connectors, serial port, 1GHz (1.2GHz on ES) dual-core TI OMAP4 series, etc.

Take a look at http://www.pandaboard.org/


There's also the Beagleboard, also more expensive: http://beagleboard.org/
