"the same price as the existing Model B+, featuring:
  • A 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU (~6x performance)
  • 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM (2x memory)
  • Complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1
Because it has an ARMv7 processor, it can run the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10."Raspberry Pi 2 Model B
6x speed improvement in tow years is way ahead of Moore's law... and another challenge for Intel.
It would be nice to have it as a "Micro-PC" in a box", ready to use.
