The long-awaited LCD from the Foundation may be a bit closer now after Eben Upton revealed to PCR that, on the 23rd June, he had signed off on a purchase order for a prototype PCB. The screen, which is expected to include multi-touch and could be any size between 7″ and 10″ has been floating around since last year and some of us saw a prototype (see picture above) at the Raspberry Jamboree in March. At that time, Alex Eames from RasPi.tv was able to find out the following specs:
- 10 point capacitive touch.
- 7 inch LCD (which could be larger in the final version)
- 800 x 480 pixel resolution
