The Raspberry Pi Model 4B's are here!

Circuit Specialists just received a few of the brand new Raspberry Pi Model 4B-2GB amd Raspberry Pi Model 4B-4GB! They are a new version of the venerable Raspberry Pi line. New to the Pi3 is onboard WiFi and Bluetooth as well as a faster 1.2GHz 64 Bit CPU. Even though there is not a 64 Bit version of Raspbian at this time, the 300 MHz faster CPU speed is a nice plus. Raspberry Pi 2 Model B I quickly confirmed that the case I had printed on our Robox RBX1 3D printer fit like a glove and I couldn't resist the urge to try the OSMC MicroSD card I had created for my earlier PI2 blog post would work on the Pi3. Low and behold, it booted right up and I was quickly watching YouTube videos with great results.

I plan on trying out a bluetooth mouse and keyboard to see how well they work. There are also a few Android apps that offer remote control options. I chose Yatse Remote from the Google Play store and I was able to get it up and running with no problems by following their handy video setup tutorial. I was then able to control the OSMC application on the Pi3 without the need for a seperate keyboard or mouse.
