I went to SP road today and found that they have started selling Raspberry Pi there. You could get it with or without case. It costs around 3200 in Lakshimi Electronics (opp to NSK)

I remember someone asking here about buying Raspberry Pi in Bangalore in this group, but forgot who it was.

Good to know that Tenet has reduced the prices. When I was looking to buy it last year, they were selling it for around 4000 or something.

I would suggest you to buy only Raspberry Pi and then buy the needed accessories. That will save you money, but you can't get started on the first day.

If you are not keen on saving money and don't have time to research about accessories then go ahead and buy http://www.tenettech.com/product/2182/raspberry-pi-kit

The other option seems to be a over kill.

yes, I though the same.

the one thing , I like with the kit is, the cover for  the device. I doubt, whether I can get the case, alone. Need to look more and do calculation.
One sad thing is, this should not happen, when I am  processing Form-16 :( ..

You have to go SP road. Map: https://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=sp+road+bangalore&aq=&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=48.50801,93.076172&vpsrc=6&ie=UTF8&hq=sp+road&hnear=Bangalore,+Bengaluru,+Karnataka,+India&ll=12.964266,77.58649&spn=0.00734,0.011362&t=m&z=17&iwloc=A&cid=11671517674518251483

In SP road find Vishal Electronics. It will be on your left side. Just opposite to Vishal Electronics there will be a small passage in a building. If you go inside on the left you will find NSK Electronics and in the right you will find Lakshimi electronics. I saw the Raspberry Pi with case in Lakshimi electronics.

PS: BTW, my name is Sudar (without the 'h') ;)

Case is available in SP road. But one thing to keep in mind is that when you buy the case, make sure it has openings for the GPIO pins. There are a couple of cases that don't have openings for GPIO pins and it will be very restrictive.

sure. thanks for the hint. As of now, I dont have idea of spending much time in Raspberry-pi. I want a low cost system, to browse the internet , while my main system run without x-server, linux varient.

http://www.extremetech.com/computing/148482-the-true-cost-of-a-raspberry-pi-is-more-than-you-think

I have beagleboard [armv7], so, all i need is a monitor. raspberry-pi[armv6] is just an option. talking with friends, to share the buying cost, since it is not my primary need.

@sudar: I guess, you must be rock and rolling with all yr raspberries :) . BTW, stellaris launchpad is awesome. It is stealing all my free time. thanks for introducing that in your blog.

Nice to know that my blog was useful for you.

Unfortunately for me I am spending my time in Arduino and Raspberry Pi and haven't done much in stellaris launchpad. Should try to to play around it some time soon :)

Did anyone try element14, heard that they are keeping stocks locally in India and sell in INR
 
I ordered and received my shipment yesterday. They have some cool accessories as well

Price is not included in the link that you sent. How much did you pay for it? Also it says you have to wait for 3 weeks. Did you had to wait?

I managed to located the shop today but it was out of stock. They did quote about 3.5K for it, though. I will go back for it tomorrow or Monday.

Which got me thinking - How do I know if the board would work fine? Do they test and sell the boards and is there some kind of warranty?

Thanks,
Hussain

Hi Sudar,

You can visit this link "http://in.element14.com//jsp/search/productdetail.jsp?id=2191863&Ntt=2191863&" and checkout the price. element14 is a leader in global electronics distribution. We have an office in Bangalore and we stock Raspberry PI locally for faster deliveries. You can call us at 1800 3000 3888 or buy directly from our website.

Naveed,

- I clicked the link. It didn't had price in it. 
- They I clicked the order now button. 
- It took me to a page where it asked me choose country.
- I choose India
- Then it asked me to choose "consumer" or "business"
- Then it took me to this page http://farnell.com/raspberrypi-consumer/approved-retailers.php?region=apac which shows the list of approved retailers.

So my question is where do I check the price or how do I buy it directly from the website?

Sudar,

Hi Sudar,

Do you own a business? If you do you have to click on the business button and it will directly take you to the pricing page where you can purchase this product.
As in.element14.com is a B2B website they only sell to other businesses but if you dont own a business you can buy it through our consumer partner which is the following:

What did you choose? Consumer or business?

I selected business and ordered from there. It costed me a total of approx. Rs. 3300 with case (including tax, delivery). You need a TIN for this though. If you select consumer, you will go to kitsnspares.com and the cost will be higher (roughly 4000).

Okay, that makes sense. So element14 can only sell to a business and not to end customer directly.

I purchased it from element14. I am really happy with the delivery. I used one of my friends TIN number to purchase raspberry pi.

Olimex is another company which is providing a similar platform https://www.olimex.com/. They're hardware specs are also open. I guess raspberry pi was a first mover here and hence the support is more visible  as is with all popular platforms.

Arduino / Beagle / RPi / Olimax / .. .

- Arduino is perfect, hackable, reproduce-able, scalable platform. For
example, If one needs to add Ethernet/ WiFi / Bluetooth / any sensor
... , we have open solution for that. Many mid scale engineers have
redesign the board and made custom board (and those solution) out of
it.

- With RPi and Beagleboard, since they have PoP assemble, making
custom board is very (very) complicated. Getting Microprocessor of one
of them it self is tough task. RPi still have lot of binary blob in
Linux Kernel. On that note, Beagle and (most) olimax boards have open
linux kernel. Beaglebone and few olimax board having ARM Cortex-A8
without PoP are good choice since it is possible to make custom
hardware (having 500MHz+ power) out of it.

- I have not personally use RPi but I think RPi is good if one just
wants to add some more i/o and use on board peripherals and hack on
embedded linux software part of it.

+1 to ankursachan.  After all, I heard almost all Rasp-pi are used as media player/manager .
But, I agree supporting docs and guides are more for this. But, so as, Beagleboard/bone etc.

And, recently I have come across this,

Hi,

I got my Raspberry Pi from NSK. Few days back I came across http://hacktronics.co.in/index.php where Raspberry Pi is for 2,999.00.

Ranganath, would by any chance have ADC for PI?

I bought mine for 2500, this is getting expensive!
