Element14 sells out of the first batch of Raspberry Pi single-board ARM 11 computers in one day

I just went to check about ordering an ARM-based Raspberry Pi computer board and Newark/Element14—the US distributor—has already sold out its initial allotment. Here are the specs:

  • SoC Broadcom BCM2835 (CPU, GPU, DSP, and SDRAM)
  • CPU: 700 MHz ARM1176JZF-S core (ARM11 family)
  • GPU: Broadcom VideoCore IV, OpenGL ES 2.0, 1080p30 h.264/MPEG-4 AVC high-profile decoder
  • Memory (SDRAM): 256 Megabytes (MiB)
  • Video outputs: Composite RCA, HDMI
  • Audio outputs: 3.5 mm jack, HDMI
  • Onboard storage: SD, MMC, SDIO card slot
  • 10/100 Ethernet RJ45 onboard network
  • Storage via SD/ MMC/ SDIO card slot

This is a $35 single-board computer that can boot and run Linux. How cool is that?
