Just confirmed the big news we’ve all been waiting for: we’ve now sold more than 5 million Raspberry Pis. — Raspberry Pi (@Raspberry_Pi) February 17, 2015The latest milestone makes it the biggest selling UK computer manufacturer of all time.
We think that this means that in just under 3 years, we’ve gone from zero to being the biggest selling UK computer manufacturer ever. Yowza. — Raspberry Pi (@Raspberry_Pi) February 17, 2015Raspberry Pi earlier said that it aims to ship three million units of the Raspberry Pi 2 within 12 months, and Tuesday's disclosure suggests that it's on track to smash that target. Still there is no word from the Firm that exactly how many Raspberry Pi 2 models have shipped, but we are likely to hear official figures in the next few days. The Raspberry Pi 2 was launched at the beginning of this month, enhancing the original Raspberry Pi with 1 GB RAM and support for Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system. PS: Microsoft has already promised free Windows 10 for every unit. The cost of Raspberry Pi 2 is same as the first-generation model at just $35.
