THE RASPBERRY PI FOUNDATION unveiled the Raspberry Pi Model B+ on Monday, and showed off the device at an event, where the mini-PC was compared to the older Model B. 

Although it's not touted as Raspberry Pi Two, but rather "the final evolution of the original Raspberry Pi", the firm has tailored the Model B+ to include all of the additions that Raspberry Pi users have requested.

The Raspberry Pi Model B+ computer has a new more compact style, low noise power input, double the number of USB ports at four, a 40-pin GPIO header, which replaces a 26-pin unit, a click-in microSD slot that puts the card neatly into the side of the unit, and a general shuffling of content on the board.

The headphone jack is still there, but it also includes better audio and video. This means that the composite RCA socket, which would be redundant, has been removed.

The Raspberry Pi Model B+ measures 85x56x17mm and costs around £25. µ
