An anonymous reader writes: Hardware hackers everywhere have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Raspberry Pi, a linux-capable embedded ARM device selling for as low as US$25. Aimed at the education, maker & hobbyist markets, the device is the brainchild of Eben Upton who launched a non-profit organization to oversee design, production and sale of the devices.
Originally expected to be released in 2011, the organization has experienced numerous delays as manufacturing and testing bugs were ironed out. But, the raspberry pi web site carried an announcement late last night that they will be "making an important announcement" tomorrow morning (2011-02-29) at 6AM GMT (that's 10PM Tuesday night in California.)
In the past, the organization has announced delays on web forums associated with their domain and has yet to "announce an announcement." It is widely believed general availability will be announced tomorrow. Upton has in the past eschewed the practice of taking pre-orders, preferring to only take people's money when they have a shipping product. So it is anticipated that the opening of a web storefront will also be announced tomorrow.
