Raspberry Pi sales hit three million milestone- The Inquirer.

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.

We’ve been tracking Raspberry Pi marketshare and growth from the start – 2.5 million was reached on FEBRUARY 28, 2014Happy 2nd birthday Raspberry Pi over 2.5 million units in the wild!.

Here are the previous market share and Pi numbers!

2 million Raspberry Pis as of October 2013 via MAKE.
How many Raspberry Pis are there? 1.75 million sold so far – and 1 million made in the UK. Posting this up for future Raspberry Pi marketshare research-
1 million Pis on January 13, 2013 and on 10/18 we posted that it reached 1.75 million, so moving over 80,000 units at the time, there must have been a huge order for 250k or more to hit 2m in October.

Previously:
