The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is out and it is great.

There are two giant upgrades in the Pi 3.  The first is a next generation Quad Core Broadcom BCM2837 64-bit ARMv8 processor, making the processor speed increase from 900 MHz on the Pi 2 to up to 1.2GHz on the Pi 3.

The second giant upgrade (and this is the one we are personally most excited about) is the addition of a BCM43143 WiFi chip BUILT-IN to your Raspberry Pi.  No more pesky WiFi adapters - this Pi is WiFi ready.  There is also Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) on board making the Pi an excellent IoT solution.

Lastly, there is an upgraded switched power source that goes up to 2.5 Amps instead of just 2 Amps - allowing your Pi to power even more powerful devices over USB ports.

The best part about all this is that the Pi 3 keeps the same shape, connectors, and mounting holes as the Pi 2.  The only difference is a slight change in where the LEDs are.  99% of cases and accessories will still be fully compatible with the Pi 3, Pi 2, and Pi B + - though if you have a case with a metal top there might be some WiFi chip difficulties.
