No more outsourcing in China

The $25 Raspberry Pi computer is no long to be made in China.

Development of the Raspberry Pi $25 computer has been carried out in the UK while manufacturing has taken place in China to keep the price down. However now the company has struck a deal with Sony and electronics distributor Premier Farnellto to enable the Raspberry Pi to be manufactured in the UK.

Liz Upton from the Raspberry Pi Foundation explained said that there was no way to make the Raspberry Pi in the UK and keep the price at $25 for Model A and $35 for Model B. However it now seems that things have changed.

Now 30,000 Raspberry Pis a month will be built in Wales an a small factory hiring 30 people. As well as making the chip, Sony has promised to ensure only ethically sourced parts are used and maintain the company’s green credentials.
