New Raspberry PI Model B+

The Raspberry PI Model B Plus is now available. The first thing to note about the B+ model is that you will need to load your operating system of choice to a micro SD card, so don’t forget to order one if you don’t already have one.

Some of the other major changes are:

  • There are now 4 USB host ports on the board
  • The I/O pin header now has 40 pins instead of 26 pins
  • The new micro SD card socket now latches the card: push the card in to lock it in the socket, push the card again to unlock it
  • The composite RCA socket has been removed
