Pi Zero W

For days there has been talk of rumors of a new board by Raspberry Pi. Something that was not confirmed or had no basis. But curiously, today the Raspberry Pi Foundation has surprised us with a board from its Raspberry Pi family, the so-called Raspberry Pi Zero W.

This new board is a version of the famous Pi Zero but improved in the connection aspect. Something that a lot of people were asking of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Pi Zero W launches on the same day as Raspberry Pi XNUMXth anniversary

Thus, the Pi Zero W has the same hardware as the normal Pi Zero but it also has a bluetooth and wireless module that will mean that we do not need to buy a wifi key or have problems with keyboards or mice. The price of the Pi Zero W will not be the same as the normal Pi Zero, in this case the price will be 10 dollars. Even so, it is a very low price if we take into account the accessories that we will save with this new version.

Official Pi Zero cases

On the other hand, in addition, An official case has been launched that follows the same design as the Raspberry Pi 3 case but adapted to the size of the Pi Zero and Pi Zero W. This new board can be purchased at any specialized store just like the Pi Zero board, although we have to say that since its launch, the Pi Zero has had stock problems, being something difficult to obtain due to its high demand.

And is that the Raspberry Pi Zero has ideal size and performance for IoT-related projectsFrom small portable servers that occupy less than a mobile phone to being able to create a smart mirror with it. The problem or the handicap of this board was in the reduced number of ports it had after using an accessory such as the keyboard or a Wi-Fi key. And this possibly does that the purchase of the new Raspberry Pi Zero W board is unleashed Or, at least, it seems. But What do you think? What do you think of the new Pi Zero W board?
