As reported by [arstechnica]:

The Raspberry Pi foundation has announced the release of the next version of Raspberry Pi Micro-computer, promising desktop level performance comparable to entry level x86 systems. Its built around a Broadcom BCM2711 SoC with four 1.5GHz Cortex A72 cPU cores, 1, 2, or even 4 GB of DDR4 ram, Gigabit Ethernet, 4 USB Ports with two being USB 3.0, USB-C port for power supply, Headphone Jack, and two Micro HDMI ports instead of one larger HDMI port. It also still includes Wifi, with an upgraded 5.0 Bluetooth.

The base 1GB ram Pi 4 version starts at 35$ like the original Pi 3, but now their are higher tiers with more ram. The 2 GB version goes for 45$, and 4 GB version for 55$. The Raspberry Pi foundation says the Pi 4 will be in production until January 2026.

sounds fun, I might get my hand's on 1.
Can i pre order them?

Have a lovely day.

I believe its available right now. When I say it will be in production until 2026, I think they meant they'll be manufacturing and supporting them until 2026. There's a Buy Now option available [here] on the announcement page that shows licensed resellers, so far in the US that includes Canakit, Chicago Electronic Distributors, PiShop.us, and Element 14. There's also a listing on adafruit [here] but its out of stock.

Thanks for the share. I've always had the intention to buy a PI, but didn't know what I'd do with it or how to set it up. Maybe with a few extra dollars lying around I'll get one.

I wonder if WIndows could be hosted on it. I could do my own mini computer with that thingy!

Well (not kind a sexy), but if I have the time I will by it. The only problem is that my country isn't so popular I'm afrade there's not unit... theresn't units here.

Well, just my electronic part, if you need it. If you like my posts, thumbs up to me. I'm just happy for being here! Oh yeah yeah.

Uh oh, best hold your orders of the new Raspberry Pi 4 for a bit, in an article just posted on [arstechnica] the developers admit that the Pi 4 models currently have a faulty USB-C design. They hope to roll out a new board revision in the "next few months".

It just means it won't work with more powerful adapters right?
Still, this and the need for a micro HDMI to HDMI cable are kind of annoying I would think.

Buy the worlds greatest machine gun. It's about 50 inches in length, It's huge! & it can shoot really far, &, it's cheap!

Per the article:

Two "CC" pins on a USB-C port are supposed to each get their own 5.1K ohms resistor, but Raspberry Pi came up with its own circuit design that allows them to share a single resistor. This is not a compliant design and breaks compatibility with some of the more powerful USB-C chargers out there.

Whether your USB-C charger works with the Pi 4 has to do with whether it uses an "e-marked" cable. E-marked cables are fully featured USB-C cables with chips inside that negotiate power management, accessory modes, data rates, and other communication specs. Since the Pi 4 USB-C port is wired incorrectly, these smart cables will detect the Pi 4 as an "Audio Adaptor Accessory" and refuse to charge them. Usually, e-marked cables are more expensive and come with larger, higher-powered items, like a USB-C laptop.

So in other words, you can't use more powerful power supplies with it, which would likely negatively effect performance. It will likely still work, but then why spend the money to purchase knowingly defective hardware when a fix is in the pipeline? Also, I don't think your the only one questioning the mini HDMI ports, but eh.

I was going to buy a few to experiment with (I have interest in helping get cheap computers + spread knowledge about them to local people in poverty) but I kinda wanna wait a few months while these issues roll out.

Missed that last part about the ECables, thanks.
Also that's a cool thing to do with your skills Daigonite.
