Mine was "backordered" too, but I got it in under 2 weeks.
"So what I’ve done is take an old (broken) battery grip that I had lying around (for my Canon 5D Mark II), and made a few modifications to it so I could fit the Raspberry Pi SBC (Single Board Computer) into it. I left a few holes in the case so that I could get at the USB and network ports, and video port. it’s a fully functioning computer with a Linux Operating System (Raspbian), has 2 USB, network, video, HDMI and GPIO."
I ordered a Raspberry Pi on Sunday night from Element 14. It arrived today. Still waiting on the other bits and pieces to make it work. I bought "Raspberry Pi A Quick Start Guide" by Maik Schmidt. The possibilities seem endless.
