The Raspberry Pi mini computer is now on sale, priced at £22 (roughly Rs. 1,700), though a cheaper £16 (Rs. 1,250) will be available later this year, with 128MB of RAM.

Eben Upton, from the Raspberry Pi Foundation in Cambridge, spoke on the launch of the Raspberry Pi.

"It has been six years in the making; the number of things that had to go right for this to happen is enormous. I couldn't be more pleased."

The mini computer will feature a Broadcom BCM2835 chipset, ARM11 processor of 700MHz, 256MB RAM, RCA and HDMI output, 3.5 mm audio jack, USB2.0 support, and is powered by 5V over microUSB. It can Linux and the plethora of software available for it, and even play videos in HD.

The team is looking at it as a great educational tool, and a very cheap way to get into computers.
