Final Evolution of the Raspberry Pi B arrives

Written by David Stellmack

More power and new hardware with the same price

The folks at the Raspberry Pi foundation have announced what they calling the “Final Evolution” of the Raspberry Pi revision B hardware. The new model which they are calling the B+ adds more to the original design of the B revision, for the same $35 price tag.

The B+ expands the GPIO header, adds 2 additional USB ports for a total of 4, it does away with the old SD card socket and moves to a new push-push micro-SD card slot, lower power consumption, better audio, and an improved form factor.

Since the Raspberry Pi has been so successful, there have been a number of other low cost solutions that have entered the market place. Once would have to assume that a model C has to be something that the Raspberry Pi folks are thinking about for the future, but right now the B+ really adds everything necessary to keep the momentum for this low cost wonder box moving forward. You can order B+ right now.
