Raspberry Pi finally arrived. Some pictures

It took more than 5 month to get our Raspberry pi. It finally arrived this morning. Most of the enthusiasm was gone weeks ago, but anyhow we had to check the board. The initial plan is to port picoFlamingo (http://papermint-designs.com/picoflamingo) to work on the Rpi, but I do not think that anything will happen before Xmas break. Some stuff for PandaBoard needs to be finished first.

Anyhow, a couple of mandatory pictures for new devices.

Also notes the blocked holes on P2 and P5Raspberry PI Revision 2 from RSComponents: After several months a Raspberry Pi has arrived. Note that this one from RS-Component is still "Made in China".

A couple of pictures, side by side with the BeagleBoard and Pandaboard to get an idea of the size.
