The Raspberry Pi 2s Model B is  being bundled with a 8Gbyte microSD card with Windows 10 IoT embedded at a price of $47.

The second-generation Raspberry Pi delivers six times the processing capacity of previous models. This is because it has an upgraded Broadcom BCM2836 processor with 1Gbyte of SDRAM, and a 40-pin GPIO.

Raspberry Pi 2 runs Windows 10 as well as the usual range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core.

Bundle comes with a 8Gbyte SanDisk Class 10 Ultra microSD card with transfer speeds of 48Mbit/s.

  1. It should be mentioned that Windows 10 IoT Embedded isn’t an operating system in the same way, for example, Windows 7 was. You need a regular Windows computer in order to be able to upload programs to run.

  2. Thats a great news towars budget computing which third world countries needs right now. Unless the user friendly windows becomes quite affordable as this case in your article, we will never move towards a connected world. Although linux based single board pcs similar to raspberry pi are even cheaper, but they all support linux.

    Great move by microsoft.
