Raspberry Pi SIM Card Kickstarter

Raspberry Pi, everyone’s favorite ugly-but-cheap mini-computer, may be about to get a lot more mobile. Ars Technica reports that a company called SparqEE is developing a yet-to-be-launched Kickstarter project that’s looking to raise $70,000 to produce an add-on for the Raspberry Pi that will let users install a SIM card that will give it access to 3G networks around the world. Even more impressively, SparqEE says that it can sell users low-cost SIM cards they can use in their Raspberry Pis since the company has “contracted with a worldwide SIM provider” that can deliver global SIM cards cheaply. In the United States, 3G-enabled Raspberry Pis will be able to hook up to AT&T’s 3G network, the company says.
