Ever since Raspberry Pi – the $35 single board computer, was launched, it has well intrigued its audience. And Eben Upton and his team does it again.Initially launched with a 700Mhz ARM CPU and 256 MB / 512 MB RAM variant, this device, not bigger than a credit card, has taken one more leap – ‘the Raspberry Pi 2‘ .
The Raspberry Pi 2 clocks at 900MHz with a Quad Core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and 1GB SDRAM , thus packing more computing power in the same size and at the same cost.Yes!! you heard it right!! Its still $35. ( Rupees 2900.00 approx. in India )
Another interesting thing is that Microsoft has announced the availability of Windows 10 on Raspberry Pi 2. This variant of Raspberry Pi is backward compatible with the other earlier versions.
I have also pre-ordered one for myself from element14 and I should be receiving it in a week or two 🙂
