I am hoping this will eventually be available for ordering here in the USA once they get the issues with the supply chain ironed out.  This has the potential to be the best thing since the HYDRA.

My daughter has recently turned 7, and for her birthday we got her one of those Vtech laptops. She came home from school today moaning and complaining saying her laptop is rubish because she cant show her friends the things on the internet on her laptop and she wants a real one. If only this device had been around 2 months ago we would have got her that and she`d be laughing now (and so would we as it probably would have been cheaper). All the games on the laptop she has I could have recreated in GLB in next to no time, plus she gets to surf the net (with adult supervision of course). Now all we need is someone to come up with reasonably priced screen and were all happy bunnies.

It's an old story. They try to get as many pre-orders as they can get, then seek for investors.
I guess we won't see a Pi before xmas.

Yep, got my confirmation of estimated delivery as 14th May 2012. Hopefully that's an accurate delivery date rather than the Panodra's "two months" debacle.
I came. I saw. I played.
