The Raspberry Pi Foundation has just announced that their new Raspberry Pi Model A mini computer priced at just $25 is now available to purchase throughout Europe, with shipping to the rest of the world happening very shortly.
The Raspberry Pi Model A builds on the technology of the first Model B mini PC, but include a few less features and consumes roughly a third of the power of the Model B. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Raspberry Pi Model A mini PC and see it in action.
Making it perfect for projects that require a battery or solar power such as robots, sensor platforms in remote locations, Wi-Fi repeaters attached to the local bus stop and so forth, and the Raspberry Pi Foundation is currently working on making the power consumption even lower.
The new Raspberry Pi Model A does not have any Ethernet connection, and is equipped with only one USB port and half the RAM of the original Model B mini PC.
“RS customers outside Europe (Allied in the US) can order a Model A now, but there will be a short delay in processing their order because we’re waiting on some paperwork before the Pis can be shipped. Farnell customers outside Europe (Newark in the US) will see Model A appear on their local sites when this paperwork has been filled.”
