Steven announces that Orange Pi can buy a good quality WiFi component for $ 1, that its cards will have a good Wi-Fi connection for this price.

-How, if the purchase of the component is $ 1, inevitably the exit fee will be a bit higher for the end customer, Mr. Zhao? - If you tell me the price, I will know your margin … –

– No, because today all Orange Pi cards are sold at the BOM (Bills of Material) rate.

-Does this mean that the cost of engineers, premises, development equipment, design and all that … is not impacted in the price of a card?

-That’s right.

“But how is this possible?”

-We are subsidized by the government.

And this is a breathtaking statement. Orange Pi is a private company in a state dumping system. This is what can be said from a Western point of view, from international agreements and from the whole conceptual framework designed to protect well-established industrialists.

Great article on how the Orange Pi is made… “The plan at 3 years is to sell ten times more Orange Pi than Raspberry.” That was would be 150 million units.

  1. I have found the orange pi to be very good, it has many OS systems including what they call a raspberry pi image, the prices are very good, plus the orange pi company has a far better attitude than the elitist and hostile attitude of the RPF, so I think in the long run orange pi will win
