Element 14 surpasses 100k RaspBerry Pi orders

Raspberry Pi's tiny $35 Model B computer, which recently began shipping, has surpassed more than 100,000 orders maker element14 reported on Wednesday. While it was originally due to ship in February, a number of delays meant element14 was only recently able to resume production in full force. Orders placed on or before April 18 will arrive by the end of June, while those received after won't ship until July.

The company co-founder Eben Upton demonstrated the computer to 15 UK schoolchildren to show off its capabilities. He also hosted a tutorial on the web to show developers how quick it is to program the device.

The company plans to release a cheaper, $25 Model A, though it will do without USB ports or an Ethernet connection. Its ship date hasn't yet been announced.
