Raspberry Pi available for order in US with 10-12 week shipping delay

Are you ready for your slice of Raspberry Pi? TechCrunch reports that electronics distributor Allied Electronics is now taking orders for the $35 computer appliance, with the caveat that it will be at least 10-12 weeks before it is actually able to ship them.
And you can order more than just the device itself; Allied’s order page has a list of available accessories including enclosures, SD cards, keyboards, mice, and an AC adapter.
I’m probably going to hold off on ordering it until the ship time is a little less (and I have a little more money) but it’s encouraging to see it become available. This little device has the potential to open the availability of all sorts of computing tasks—including e-reading—to people of all income ranges.
