The initial delays on the Raspberry PI are stretching out a little – some issues with first batch. RS seems to be getting ready for the dispatch of orders as time settles. I got to wondering what other offerings are out there – nothing at the same price point but some more “fully formed” options do exist.
In no particular order
Cubox from Solid Run here
The Cotton Candy pretending to be a usb key here
Or the Pandaboard here
All of these provide variations on a theme and could be adapted for projects where the Raspberry PI will end up being used. However I am still hopeful that my slice of PI will be arriving soon and I can get started with a project.
