Hardware, Embedded Systems "Raspberry Pis started being made a couple of days ago, but I was forbidden to tell you about it until signed contracts and receipts for payment had arrived - it's been killing me, especially since I've had tens of you asking me when manufacturing would start every day for the last few weeks. I am not good at keeping secrets." No more secrets to keep, Liz! I can't wait to place my order.

Perhaps it was a simple oversight, and that their calculation was something like parts + manufacture + overheads = £25. This price seemed to attract a lot of attention in the public eye, and maybe it would've been bad publicity to keep upping it as the details were ironed out, and the extent of taxation was realised.
