New product! Raspberry Pi Zero W joins the family

 

Haven't seen the specs, but thinking many people would be pissed if they changed the pin layout.

Which leads me to believe....we can build our PSP's with Bluetooth and WiFi!!

I've done some comparisons. My concern was the microSD connection pads, and it looks like the pad locations are the same.

Nice to see that I won't have any problem with the wifi when I will start my PSPi 😉

Hmm would be nice to have confirmation of it actually working.. I think nothing changed.. but yeh before putting in effort to order a W I'd love to have 100% security

We will know in a few days. I've got orders coming from Canada and the UK. Unfortunately none of the US distributors have them in stock yet.

Should be getting mine tomorrow so will take a look. Looking at photos, it would appear that the cpu has moved over a bit to accommodate the wifi chip.

She's a beauty.

I'm still waiting for mine to arrive, but it appears that all the pads are in the same place. They aren't labeled now, so that could make a few guides a little harder to follow.

It appears that the RetroPie images aren't working yet.

The Pi Zero W is a perfect fit in the Version 3. We've now got Wifi and Bluetooth in the PSPi.

Thats great news. Are you saying that if RetroPie adds support to Pi W, there wont be anything different you'll have to do when configuring PSPi v3?

Yes. You won't have to do anything special. Also, they've already got a build made that works with the Zero W, so we are good to go now with RetroPie.
