To celebrate its fifth birthday, Raspberry Pi Foundation unveiled a new variant of the Raspberry Pi Zero, with Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi (802.11n) connectivity, priced at just US$10. The rest of the Pi stays the same, with a single-core processor clocked at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM and Mini-HDMI and micro-USB ports. Just the thing for miniature robots or other systems where size and wireless connectivity matter. The Pi Zero W is available at Canakit for CA$13.45, with a limit of one per customer. The Starter Kit, which includes a case, an 8GB MicroSD card, a power supply, a USB On-The-Go cable and a Mini HDMI adapter, is going for CA$46. The original Pi Zero is still available, for CA$6.75.
