The CutiePi, a Raspberry Pi-based tablet, has been upgraded with more powerful internals. The developer has made other changes too, although the display remains unchanged. The new CutiePi is available to pre-order for US$199 and will begin shipping in July 2021.

CutiePi has released a new version of its Raspberry Pi-based tablet. Nothing has changed from the basic concept that the company delivered with its first tablet, but it has altered the single-board computer on which the latest CutiePi is based. The CutiePi tablet has always used devices from the Raspberry Pi ecosystem, but the latest model has received an upgrade to the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 (CM4).

Hence, the new CutiePi has 2 GB of RAM and a Broadcom BCM2711 processor with four ARM Cortex-A72 cores running at up to 1.5 GHz. Additionally, the 206 x 134 x 14 mm tablet has an 8-inch IPS display that supports touch input. The dimensions and resolution of the display in the new model remain unchanged from the previous model. The CutiePi has a micro HDMI port for connecting the tablet to an external monitor, too.

A built-in microphone is another new feature, which should be helpful. However, CutiePi has stuck with the 2 W speakers from the previous model, but it may have removed its six GPIO ports. Unsurprisingly, the CutiePi supports up to Bluetooth 5.0 and 802.11 ac Wi-Fi. There are also USB Type-A and Type-C ports, along with a 5 MP camera.

The CutiePi is available to pre-order from US$199. The manufacturer hopes to begin shipping units in July 2021, although we would expect additional customs charges to be incurred depending on where you live.
