Made in the UK! – Raspberry Pi.

If you’ve been following us for a while, you’ll remember the time last year when we had to make the decision to manufacture the Raspberry Pi in China. The Raspberry Pi is a British enterprise, and as well as improving things in the computing industry’s future here by educating kids, we wanted to improve things in the present too, by actually doing our manufacture here in the UK.

Next version(s) of the boards that should hit the USA in October or later will be the UK models.


Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro” ? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry Pi.

  1. Kind of creepy that it’s Sony doing the manufacturing. They can’t seem to help themselves but install nasty SW and tie you in to everything they touch. 🙂
