God.
A rather absent one, considering that I've never seen you before.

I don't see how any of this is relevant for the thread. If you want to ask me who I am please do so through a PM. I'd rather not derail OP's thread.

In hindsight this should have been my first response to you. Instead of trying to be "cute",  sorry for that.

The Rasberry Pi is cute, but considering how android comes with devolper tools included, how nessecary an initiative is it education wise?
I think the R-Pi will mainly end up getting embraced by the hobbyist tech-crowd, intergrating it into whatever wild project they have in mind. Which I expect will give more cool results like this.

(By the way, the German Conrad stores really overprice the Pi.)
No religion for me thank you very much; I 'm full of shit enough as it is.

I'm guessing the price card helps quite a lot. From what I saw, it's only a $25 machine, even with developer tools included it might be hard to find an android box at that price. And it's affordable enough that you can buy one for each person in a class in school, so that everyone can play with them.

Also Android is an operating system, not hardware. I don't know if they've succeeded yet, but there is a group trying to get Android to run on Raspberry Pi. So the major advantages with Raspberry Pi are cost, and being able to mess with hardware.

I was thinking it would be an overabundance in classrooms where tablet computers have all but replaced the old backbreaker-schoolbag, and I was also thinking that's pretty much where things are headed on the long run.

The advantage of a raspberry pie over a tablet is that you don't have to be afraid to muck it up with your software :P
They're also easier to solder extensions on to. But I see the point of the tablet taking stuff over for a lot of things.
