In the corridors of the Electronica Messe in Munich Eben Upton is showing us the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+. “The cheaper version of our latest product line”, as Eben calls it. With half of the memory of the 3B+ model and with the wired ethernet and USB hub taken out, this new model will arrive at the 25 dollar price point. “We think that this model will appeal to people in search for for the processing power, but with a smaller footprint and a lower price.”
Apart from the announcement of this new Raspberry Pi model, we also discuss the new round of funding (from the UK government for educational projects) and the launch of a new magazine, Wireframe.
