Good news from Raspberry Pi Trading – Raspberry Pi Zero production is soon to enter a new phase, bringing with it better availability… and something mysterious. Here’s what Eben Upton had to say on a recent Raspberry Pi Forum thread:
Raspberry PI Zero production is restarting in Wales next Monday after a hiatus to allow us to focus on Raspberry Pi 3 (a million units built and counting). We have placed 250ku of new orders, and are aiming to produce at least 50ku/month for the rest of this year. Distribution will continue to be via Pimoroni, Pi Hut, Adafruit and Micro Center for now.
He also added a mysterious hint of something new to be added to the Zero:
To thank you for your patience, we’ve taken advantage of the hiatus to add a (much requested) new feature. I’ll leave you all to guess what it is (it’s not WiFi).
So! What do you reckon the new feature is? Add a comment below with your best guess!
