Update: Raspberry Pi now available
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has developed an ultra-low-cost computer, for use in teaching computer programming to children. It is expected to have many other applications both in the developed and the developing world.
The first product is about the size of a credit card, and is designed to plug into a TV or be combined with a touch screen for a low cost tablet. The expected price is $25 for a fully-configured system.
