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.

What ever happened to the lower cost/higher volume Asian Supplier they had supposedly selected a few weeks back?

By licensing manufacture they let someone else deal with those issues of supply, manuf, sales and support and stay with what they do best: system development and marketing. They just don't have the personnel to deal with keeping an eye on the whole production chain.
