Creator CI20 From Imagination – the New Raspberry Pi Rival

/ 3 years ago



The Creator CI20, developed by UK chip designer Imagination, is a microcomputer set to rival the Raspberry Pi. Although slightly bigger in size, Imagination’s project packs more processing power, more RAM, and its own onboard flash storage.

Like the Raspberry Pi, the CI20 can support various Linux operating systems, but, unlike its competitor, can run the Android 4.4 KitKat OS, too. It features on-board WiFi and Bluetooth functionality, compared to the Pi’s single Ethernet port. The Ci20 will cost slightly more than the Raspberry Pi, priced at £50 ($65). It is available for pre-order now, with the first models shipped in January 2015.

    Slightly more? Raspberry A+ costs $20 and B+ $35. It’s not exactly “slightly”. You can buy 3 A+ and keep also $5 in the pocket, or pay $5 more and get 2 B+.
