Raspberry Pi sells 2.5 million units

The Raspberry Pi Foundation announced that it has sold 2.5 million Raspberry Pi Model B units since the device's initial launch in February of 2012.

Built to encourage the teaching of computer science in schools, the Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized computer that offers a range of features and open-source software support for hobbyist programmers. Indie developer Mojang released a free version of Minecraft for the device last year, and next month's launch of Code Club Pro will deliver curriculum training and online resources to primary school teachers worldwide.
