Raspberry Pis just became a bit easier to get ahold of in the United States. Beginning last week, some RadioShack locations started carrying MAKE’s Raspberry Pi Starter Kit, which includes a Raspberry Pi Model B, power supply, SD card with NOOBS preloaded, HDMI cable, a case, prototyping components and a print and PDF download of Getting Started with Raspberry Pi.

“If we’re going to reach our goal of teaching a whole new generation of children coding and making skills it’s important that Pi should be easily available,” said Eben Upton, co-founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. “Having it in retail alongside a great kit and documentation is a big part of that.”

At the location I visited on 6th Avenue in New York City, the kit was available along with Maker Shed’s Ultimate Arduino Microcontroller Pack, and Getting Started with the BeagleBone Black Kit.
