Raspberry Pi Zero already sold out, ALREADY!!

Virtually every Raspberry Pi Zero in existence has been sold within 24 hours of the miniature £4 (R71.51) computer’s launch, The Raspberry Pi Foundation has said.

Around 20,000 Pi Zeroes have been sold, along with almost every copy of MagPi magazine, which included a free Zero on the cover.

The Zero’s popularity has also made it the target for touts. Copies of MagPi are on eBay for up to £99 (R2 130.01), with some already bought for up to £49.99 (R1 075.55).

“You’d think we’d be used to it by now, but we’re always amazed by the level of interest in new Raspberry Pi products,” Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, tells WIRED.

“Right now it appears that we’ve sold every individual Zero we made (that’s roughly 20,000 units) and most of the 10,000 MagPi issues with cover-mounted units; people are scouring the country for the last few Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury and Smiths branches that haven’t sold out.”
