If you can’t have Raspberry – what can you have ?

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

Beagleboard 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.
