Raspberry Pi has Manufacturing and Distribution Partnerships

Good news, Slashdot and others are reporting that Raspberry Pi has manufacturing and distribution partnerships that will enable wide-scale availability of its devices!

Eben Upton, one of the leaders of the project to make the $35, credit-card-sized single-board computers widely available to engineering students and professionals as a research platform, says two British companies, Premier Farnell and RS Components, will handle the manufacturing and distribution on behalf of Rasberry Pi.

Rasberry Pi will make a small profit from each Raspberry Pi sold, which will be put back into the UK charity organization, which is focused on creating platforms for research and development.
