The Raspberry Pi has reached distributors and is ready to ship, according to statement released by the U.K distributor of the credit-card sized computer.
A school in Leeds, U.K, received the first batch of shipments Friday.
“We are delighted to have the first batch of fully compliant products in our warehouse and to be able to invite the first wave of customers who registered for a Raspberry Pi to place their orders from this initial stock,” said Glenn Jarrett Head of Electronics Marketing at RS Components, the Raspberry Pi’s UK distributor.
“There has been a great deal of anticipation for Raspberry Pi since its launch at the end of February, and it is important that we provide a delivery guarantee to customers when they place their order.”
The Raspberry Pi Model A comes with 256MB of onboard RAM, one USB port, a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC with an ARM processor clocked at 700MHz and Videocore 4 GPU, onboard audio, HDMI output, RCA video, and an SD card slot. Model B will ship with all of these features, plus an Ethernet port and an additional USB port.
Customers who have already placed an order should receive their Raspberry Pi by April 20.
