R-Pi’s 256MB just doesn’t cut it for your Java application? The Raspberry Pi foundation let us know that all outstanding Model B orders will be getting double the memory.
With this in mind, we’re pleased to announce that from today all Model B Raspberry Pis will ship with 512MB of RAM as standard. If you have an outstanding order with either distributor, you will receive the upgraded device in place of the 256MB version you ordered. Units should start arriving in customers’ hands today, and we will be making a firmware upgrade available in the next couple of days to enable access to the additional memory.
