Raspberry Pi has sold its three millionth unit, a little over two years after the low-cost educational computer now beloved by developers went on sale. The $35 Raspberry Pi Model B astonished when it was first announced, a full computer – albeit a relatively low-power one – that could be used for quickly prototyping projects as well as exploring programing, but has gone on to ignite a market of low-cost hobby boards.
In fact, the Raspberry Pi team admits, the milestone was actually achieved last month, and sales are now in excess of three million units. A delay in the sales stats meant it’s only being announced today.
The team hasn’t finished, though, recently unveiling the next generation of Raspberry Pi hardware. Sized akin to a stick of RAM, the compact ‘board will allow for embedded implementations, though Raspberry Pi says there’ll also be a more modular version better suited to prototyping.
