That $35, credit card size computer that plays 1080p now has an app store

Have you heard of Raspberry Pi?

It’s a computer built to promote the study of computer science, especially at a grade school level.

It’s an ultra-low-cost credit-card sized Linux computer which was conceived with the primary goal of teaching computer programming to children. It was developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, which is a UK registered charity.

A New App Store

A few friends of mine received in the mail recently one of these new new credit-card sized computers. So when this popped up in the news, it stuck out to me as interesting.

Working with IndieCity and Velocix, Raspberry Pi has launched the store to make it easier for developers to share games, applications, tools and tutorials.

Similar to Google and Apple

The store looks similar to what you see when you visit Google Play or the iTunes App Store. The application ‘Raspbian’ allows users to download content and upload their own to be released and available.

The store has launched with 23 free titles. Raspberry Pi is on the move. We’ll see some interesting things from the product over time, I’m sure.
