Today the official Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced a new reseller based in Brazil that will carry the new Anatel-approved Raspberry Pi 3 Blue which are on sale from today and rather than sporting a green board are now finished in an Arduino style blue. The Raspberry Pi Foundation explains more about the latest addition to their approved reseller program and the new hardware available from FilipeFlop who is now available to sell Raspberry Pi 3 units across Brazil.
The difficulty in buying our products — and the lack of Anatel certification — have been consistent points of feedback from our many Brazilian customers and followers. In much the same way that electrical products in the USA must be FCC-approved in order to be produced or sold there, products sold in Brazil must be approved by Anatel. And so we’re pleased to tell you that the Raspberry Pi finally has this approval.
Since first announcing it back in August, we have further expanded our Approved Reseller programme by adding resellers for Austria, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, and the US. All Approved Resellers are listed on our products page, and more will follow over the next few weeks!
