Newsbrief: The tiny Raspberry Pi computer has sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide since it was released two years ago, says the team behind the device -- that's around 500,000 sold in the last three months.

The device, which was designed to help teach programming to students, originally sold 1 million in its first year. It would appear that demand for the computer is still very much there.

Of course, there are plenty of factors that will have helped sales of the Raspberry Pi grow, such as the online distribution store that launched at the end of 2012, and the reveal of Minecraft: Pi Edition.
