The blue Raspberry Pi is only available to buyers in Brazil. It will be sold through FilipeFlop, the first Approved Pi Reseller in the South American country, but if you’re thinking of ordering it online, you can’t. The Raspberry Pi Foundation explains: "People outside Brazil will not be able to purchase the blue variant from FilipeFlop."
The Pi now has Anatel approval in Brazil, making it much easier for people living there to buy the device.
The color of the Brazilian Pi is the only difference between it and the version available to buyers in the rest of the world. Although there are currently no plans to make available outside of Brazil, we can but hope.
