What is the point of spark core if photon is better in every way?

Is there any reason one would get core instead of photon (when it comes out) because its better and cheaper.

Hi @Nimonster,

Good question! The Core came first, so it’s available to ship now, and while the Photon is better and cheaper, they won’t be shipping until our first run is done in March 2015. We tried to keep the pinouts and firmware as compatible as possible, so anything you prototype now with the Core should transition really smoothly to the Photon when it’s shipped. :slight_smile:
