    RasberryPi is a credit card sized $35 Linux based computer with a 700mhz Arm processor, 256mb ram, hdmi out, rca video out, audio out, ethernet, usb2.0, and an SD card slot. It is in production from a UK company. It has been demoed running xbmc playing back 1080i HD video. It has also been demoed playing back video streamed to it by an iPad over airplay.

    Once webOS is open-sourced I am thinking it would make for a cool OS / UI. Of course webOS would need support for a bluetooth mouse, but this could make for an interesting and super cheap HTPC when paired to an existing HDTV.

    Any other applications / use cases folks can think of?
    What would the main obstacles be to getting webOS ported to RasberryPi?

    $25 for 128mb (A model), $35 for 256mb (B model).
    The latter is the minimum for webOS.

    I just ran across this Raspberry Pi today, though I found it from imore. Yeah yeah yeah, I have an iPhone. Thought the airplay would be kinda cool, but if some similar implementation could be done with webOS, I'd be all for it. Also, the $35 version has ethernet, while the $25 version offers no ethernet or wireless.
