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.
We’ve been tracking Raspberry Pi marketshare and growth from the start – 2.5 million was reached on FEBRUARY 28, 2014 – Happy 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.
