* As on 13th Aug 15, this TFT touch screen display is compatible only for Raspberry Pi model A+, B+ and model 2.
Check this out if you are using Raspberry Pi, it is the cutest little display that you can stack on your Raspberry Pi 2. It features a 2.8" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The plate uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top!
It's designed to fit nicely onto the Pi Model A+ or B+, fit perfectly with the Pi 2, but not compatible with older version of Raspberry Pi.
Uses the hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. All other GPIO are unused. Since we had a tiny bit of space, there's 4 spots for optional slim tactile switches wired to four GPIOs, that you can use if you want to make a basic user interface. For example, you can use one as a power on/off button.
It comes fully assembled and ready to plug into your Pi! No more soldering is required.
Adafruit has created a custom kernel package based of off Notro's awesome framebuffer work, so you can install it over your existing Raspbian (or derivative) images in just a few commands. This tutorial shows you how to install the software, as well as calibrate the touchscreen, show videos, display images such as from your PiCam and more!
2.8" TFT touch screen display for Rasberry Pi model A+, B+ and also Pi 2.
Current consumption: ~100mA during full back light.

Resistive touch overlay.
Uses Hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CEO, CE1) and well as GPIO #25 and #24.
Fully assembled, plug and use on Rasberry Pi, still you need to install the kernel support for the 1st time.
