The Raspberry Pi foundation has revealed its newest PC, the Model B+, with a number of hardware improvements compared to the old Model B but still keeping its $35 price tag.
The Model B+ has the same processor, software and amount of RAM (512 MB) as the Model B, but contains four USB 2.0 ports instead of just two, and a "push-push" microSD port compared to the full SD card slot. There's also a dedicated power supply for the audio circuit, and the Model B+ uses between 0.5W and 1W less power than before. Its GPIO header has 40 pins compared to 26. All of that new and improved hardware is contained in a more organized form factor.
The Raspberry Pi Model B+ is already on sale but the foundation plans to keep the older B version around "for as long as there's demand for it." What do you think of this new version and do you plan to purchase it?
