SInce RPi is a non-profit organization for education, I am wondering if RPi may be a victim of its success - in other words is there apoint where Broadcom etc. will not donate more deivces to build more RPi? I do not know the exact number, but I have heard that there are over 2 million shipped to date. That is a lot of devices.
It seems that the Raspberry Pi keeps growing and growing in new and broader applications. It almost seems to have a life of its own, just goes to show you the level of interest in the hobby market for a low cost / powerful / small computing platform. I can't wait to see what is done next..
Man, the Raspberry Pi really is going nuts. I can't believe how many things people are doing with them. I'm probably going to do a mini arcade with mine even though I know it will rarely ever get used.

All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
