Hello, and Happy 3.14159265359 Day, everyone! Today is, of course, a big day in the maker community since we are all pretty big fans of birthday boy Albert Einstein, mathematical constants and, of course, Raspberry Pi single-board computers! As you may have heard this morning, The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced a brand-new version of the Raspberry Pi: the Raspberry Pi 3 B+! This smart new board features the capability to support gigabit Ethernet and improved microprocessor cooling. Needless to say, this new RPi has us pretty excited, so we have begun designing our own Starter Kit around it! Both are available for pre-order right now!
Now, today isn't all about these new Raspberry Pi 3 B+ products, and we will go into more detail about them at the end of this week during our Friday Product Post. But just as a reminder, since these two are pre-order products we will begin shipping them as soon as they come into stock. Adding a pre-order product to an order may cause a delay, so be sure to uncheck "ship complete order" in your cart to avoid delays in shipping in-stock items.
So what else is happening today other than this fun new Raspberry Pi product? We've got a couple of sales and a bunch of products to consider with a Pi!
We hope you get some good use and love out of the new Raspberry Pi 3 B+ as well as all the products above! Make sure to check back tomorrow and Friday for more Pi goodness in the forms of handy tutorials, new products and a closer look at these new Raspberry Pi offerings!
