"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 systems.

"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."
