Following a nearly two-year-long search, the Raspberry Pi Foundation today unveiled the official $60 touchscreen for its miniature computers. Although you could previously hook up a display to a Pi through an HDMI port, the new 7-inch, 800 x 480 pixel, 10-point touchscreen display is a handy, affordable alternative — although it might take a little more ingenuity to successfully connect to power. The screen also comes with six optional frames with brighter colors, if you don’t mind shelling out about a £10 (about $15) premium to use them.
The Pi is available at the Raspberry Pi Store, Allied Electronics, Newark, Premier Farnell, and RS Components. The Pi Foundation says stock is expanding to other sellers later this week.
