Photos: Inside the first Raspberry Pi store

Welcome to the Pi store

Move over Apple, there's a fresh computer brand adding a fruity flavour to walk-in stores.

The first physical Raspberry Pi shop has opened in the historic university city of Cambridge, which is also home to Raspberry Pi Foundation, the organisation behind the family of best-selling credit card-sized boards.

The store will do more than sell Raspberry Pi boards, and will also be a meeting place for Pi owners to share their tips and tricks for programming the $35 computer and its siblings.

The opening bucks a recent trend in UK shopping centres, which have seen a rash of big brand names shut their doors amid falling sales.
