THE RASPBERRY PI FOUNDATION has announced hardware sales of three million and a casual visit with the Queen for a bit of show and tell. The Raspberry Pi computer has been a solid mover since its release and its sales have grown from one million to two million, and now three million. The number was announced in a blog post written by Raspberry Pi Foundation communications head Liz Upton, who explained that things have gone well at Buckingham Palace and for the Raspberry Pi in general.
..Liz Upton said that the three millionth Raspberry Pi was sold last month. Eben Upton told us that the hardware is now rivaling sales of the veteran Amstrad CPC machine.
