==Now shipping to customers==
+
Premier Farnell and RS Components have started shipping to customers. Congratulations to those at the front of the queue!.
+
 
+
Work is ongoing to clear the backlog of orders, with both distributors now manufacturing them in serial production. Farnell/Element14 have stated that all people worldwide who ordered their Raspberry Pi through them on or before April 18th should receive theirs by the end of June.
+
 
+
See the [[RPi Buying Guide | Buying Guide]] on how to order one, or visit the [http://www.raspberrypi.org Raspberry Pi Foundation Home Page]

+
 
+
The Raspberry Pi (short: RPi or RasPi) is an ultra-low-cost credit-card sized Linux computer which was conceived with the primary goal of teaching computer programming to children. It was developed by the [http://www.raspberrypi.org Raspberry Pi Foundation], which is a UK registered charity (Registration Number 1129409). The foundation exists to promote the study of computer science and related topics, especially at school level, and to put the fun back into learning computing. The device to expected have many other applications both in the developed and the developing world ([[RPi_Philosophy|Read more]]).
+
 
+
Raspberry Pi is manufactured and sold in partnership with the worldwide industrial distributors [http://www.farnell.com/ Premier Farnell/Element 14] and [http://rswww.com/ RS Components].
