Small computer ships big numbers, production up

The diminutive Raspberry Pi computer has gone on to big sales, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced last week. Since its launch in February of last year, the tiny Linux device has gone on to more than a million units sold, according to a post on the Foundation's blog. Manufacturing of the device has also been scaled up, considerably.

Last week's blog post notes that Raspberry Pi's United Kingdom operations are now producing about 40,000 units a week and have so far pumped out more than 500,000 units in the past six months. The post does not go into detail, but UK production is expected to go up, with the near future seeing "more Made in the UK Pis in the world than their Made in China cousins."

Figures released in January showed the micro computer shipping more than 500,000 units in its first 10 months. Since its release, the Pi has gone on to add a camera peripheral and to get its own Pi Store for apps.
