Raspberry Pi Will Cost $41 In Australia

There’s still a massive shortage of stock right now, but official Australian distributor RS Components has confirmed that the Raspberry Pi “computer on a board” will sell for about $41 in Australia, including delivery.

While it’s not the first example of an operational computer on a chip, the Raspberry Pi has attracted global attention, and the first run earlier in April this year sold out really quickly. RS Components is accepting pre-orders on its site, and says delivery will be on a “first come, first served” basis with only one board per customer. The exact price will depend on exchange rates on the as-yet-unscheduled launch day, RS officials said at the Australian press launch today. Current pre-orders aren’t expected to ship before July.

So far, more than 4,700 Australians have downloaded the DesignSpark SDK for building applications for the Raspberry Pi.
