The Raspberry Pi Celebrates Its10 Million Units Sales with A New Starter Kit
We knew the Rasberry Pi had a success wave coming but we can’t deny that we are surprised it is this big, selling 5 million pieces in the last 18 months alone and it clearly didn’t stop there because right now it has sold 10 million units.
We’re talking about the Raspberry Pi, the tiny single-board computer that launched back in 2011. It has helped to raise a new generation of hobbyist hardware hackers, to encourage innovations, and helped lower the entry barrier to the IoT just the same way it has reshaped the personal computing era as it is available to various Ubuntu-based distros.
It was just last year that the Raspberry Pi Foundation CEO Eben Upton announced that the board sold 5 million units — meaning it has sold an additional 5 million units since then!
The Official Raspberry Pi Starter Kit
Raspberry Pi will be launching an all-new official starter kit in order to celebrate the gigantic ten million milestone.
This brand new official £99 ‘Raspberry Pi Starter Kit’ features:
- A Raspberry Pi 3
- 8GB SD card (with the NOOBs OS preloaded)
- Raspberry Pi 3 case
- Power supply
- HDMI cable
- A Mouse and a keyboard
- A copy of Adventures in Raspberry Pi Foundation Edition
The Raspberry Pi Starter Kit is available to buyers in the UK and according to the Foundation, it will soon be available to the rest of the world.
