Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ Released For $25 USD
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ is a slightly cut-down version of the 3 Model B+ and comes after there wasn't an A+ version of the Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 up to this point.
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ offers a 1.4GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 processor, 512MB LPDDR2 RAM, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi/WLAN, Bluetooth 4.2 / Bluetooth Low Energy, improved USB support, and better thermal management.
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ is the last release of the Raspberry Pi as it's currently known as the next product debut will likely be a major re-design from the ground-up. As reiterated today, "the 3+ platform is the final iteration of the “classic” Raspberry Pi: whatever we do next will of necessity be less of an evolution, because it will need new core silicon, on a new process node, with new memory technology. So 3A+ is about closing things out in style, answering one of our most frequent customer requests, and clearing the decks so we can start to think seriously about what comes next."
