Developed by the UK-based Raspberry Pi Foundation, the Raspberry Pi Model B+ is the third iteration of the credit-card sized computer, which has sold 3m units since launch in 2012.

It runs a variant of the free open-source operating system Linux, which powers many web servers and Android smartphones.

For those that aren’t familiar, the Raspberry Pi is a low-cost, low-powered full computer that has been used by everyone from tinkerers to educators to gadget-makers.

The Raspberry Pi Model B+ still sells for the same $35 and has the same application processor and amount of RAM (512MB), but here are a few other changes:

Raspberry Pi Model B+ is available to purchase direct from RS stock for immediate shipment priced at $35 in single unit quantities.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation says that even though it thinks the Model B+ is a better fit for most users, it also understands that lots of industrial customers have created specific setups for the Model B. As a result, it will continue making the Model B units as long as there is demand.
