Exciting new embedded devices for developers (Raspberry Pi and Arduino Due)

The imminent release of two new hardware products are worth getting excited about.

Raspberry Pi

The first is the Raspberry Pi. It comes in two flavours:

The Model A

 The Model B


The best way to describe it is as a $25 (Model B is $35) equivalent of the first BeagleBoard in a smaller form factor hence fewer ports.  It is slated to be available in November 2011. (Note for the Australian and New Zealand audience: It is very likely I will be selling these locally to help avoid shipping costs from the UK. Stay tuned)
