To quote from http://www.engadget.com/2015/11/28/rasp ... #continued :
“Eben Upton admitted that the follow-up to the original $35 Pi was originally going to be a more powerful model, whose higher-performing internals would have put the price somewhere between $50 and $60.”
Can anyone comment on this, if a RP3 is despite RP0 still coming rather soon? Personally, I would like to have more computing power (not the least the single core performance), and I think, I am not alone. There are lots and lots of people out there struggling with competitors (Odroid, Hikey/Lemaker, OrangePi, RoseapplePi, Olimex et al), especially their lack of good and longterm support. Even the whole 96boards-thing is not really gaining ground: they said to have at least 10 boards ready by the end of 2015, but have just 2 boards available.
Which all in all means that I am quite convinced that also a RP3 would be a great success, although probably not as great as the RP0 atm seems to become.
