Last week saw the brand new Raspberry Pi 3 being released. This comes two years after the Raspberry Pi 2 model B was released, the Raspberry Pi 3 will have a faster 64-bit processor and built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. These features, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, past Raspberry Pi versions, enabling you to easily connect to other electronic devices. With WiFi and Bluetooth built into the PI, connectivity will be more reliable and free up USB ports allowing you to add other peripherals like a keyboard and mouse.
The new Raspberry Pi 3 is available in online stores for around £30 and will be available from the 29th February 2016. The Raspberry Pi has now outsold the Amstrad PCW, making it the most popular British computer yet made. There have been around eight million units of the small computer sold across the world in the past four years. The gadget has been used widely in schools and also at Code Clubs, as an educational tool for children.
With the Raspberry Pi 3 having a 50% performance improvement on the Pi 2 it is only more likely that sales on the Pi will increase in years to come. For just £30 why not try it out for yourself.
