Raspberry Pi sells two million units

by Rob Zwetsloot

The Raspberry Pi is selling much faster than expected, shifting two million boards since launch, a million of which sold over the last eight to nine months

There’s no denying that the Raspberry Pi has gone from strength to strength over the past 18 or so months, with coverage in every major tech outlet and mainstream news organisation. The board has inspired kids and adults everywhere to get into computing or tech, or merely to power new and existing projects.

Pi Birthday
We celebrated the Pi’s first birthday not too long ago

On its first anniversary, or near enough, the Raspberry Pi hit its one millionth sale. News also broke in the summer that 1.5 million had been sold, a million of which had been manufactured in the UK. So it comes as a pleasant surprise to hear that the Raspberry Pi has broken the magic two million mark a full three months before its second birthday.

In honour of this, the Raspberry Pi Foundation have released photos of the unboxing of the first shipment of Raspberry Pi’s. You can still get a Raspberry Pi from element14 and RS Components.
