The official Raspberry Pi 7 inch touchscreen display is available to buy, with an 800×480 RGB screen, 24-bit colour and 10-point capacitive touch.
There were ways to connect the Raspberry Pi to several kind of displays, but having an official, specific touch display is really nice. I guess we’ll see tablets and laptops based on this combination very soon.
This is interesting for makers, but not that much for end users: if you want a cheap tablet you’ve got lots of good options and even Amazon is planning to launch a $50 dollar one.
Like the Pi Camera, this is a really welcome addition to the RPi family. Let’s see what creations come up from this.
