"The biggest question hanging over the Raspberry Pi is whether
it's actually needed at this stage in time. Five years ago it would
have been a Godsend but we now have smartphones and tablets which
are affordable, can do a lot more than this device will ever be
able to, and run on widely supported and secure operating
"The other questions relate to how this device is actually going
to get in the hands of those who want it. The first deliveries are
being promised in December, which is pretty good going coming just
seven months after the concept was revealed. But we're talking a
small amount of devices dispatched in this time frame, with 10,000
part kits (which will then be turned into the finished product)
coming in this first shipment."
