The awesome minicomputer in the form of the Raspberry Pi mini PC as this week announced that sales of the device have passed 2 million and sales are accelerating ahead of projections.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation responsible for creating and manufacturing the mini PC announced the milestone over the weekend explaining that the 2,000,000th Raspberry Pi PC was sold in the last week of October 2013.
The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation that first launched back on 29th February 2012. The Raspberry Pi mini PC is equipped with a Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip (SoC), which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor.
“We took the web’s first Raspberry Pi unboxing picture. (below) and on getting the news about the 2,000,000th Pi at the end of last week, it struck us that every single Raspberry Pi in that pallet represents 1000 of the Raspberry Pis that are spread around the world today.
We never thought we’d be where we are today when we started this journey: it’s down to you, our amazing community, and we’re very, very lucky to have you. Thanks!”
