Raspberry Pi B+ - Still Slow, But A Small Improvement
The Raspberry Pi Foundation announced today the launch of the Raspberry Pi Model B+ as the final evolution of the original RPi board while still costing $35 USD.
Raspberry Pi Model B+ sticks to the same Broadcom BCM2835 SoC with 512MB of RAM while the B+ version has more GPIO pins, two more USB 2.0 ports (4 total), a micro SD slot to replace the SD card socket, lower power consumption, improved audio, and a neater form factor with standardized mounting holes.
Today's announcement of the Raspberry Pi B+ can be found via RaspberryPi.org.
Hopefully by the time of the "Raspberry Pi 2" the specifications will be a bit more tempting. For those caring more about features and performance over price for an ARM development board, my current favorite board remains the NVIDIA Jetson TK1.
