Raspberry Pi 3 compatibility with Streaming Lite/ Smart Data Streaming

I am looking to experiment with a real world IoT concept by following the instructions on this blog written by Robert.

Link: https://blogs.sap.com/2016/02/01/learning-how-to-use-streaming-lite-with-hana-smart-data-streaming/

A couple of clarifications requested with respect to the hardware:

1. As highlighted below, Raspberry Pi 2 was used in the experiment with SP10.

2. The official documentation also states that the following requirements are needed for Streaming Lite to be successfully installed on the edge device.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(i). I wanted to check if Raspberry Pi 3 can be made use of for implementing the same exercise with Streaming Lite, Smart Data Streaming on SP12?

(ii). Do you see any potential roadblocks with respect to the compatibility (hardware/software) in this regard?

(iii). I was hoping to buy this device (Link above - Raspberry Pi 3, Model B) I am not sure what model B means, but I was just looking to get a confirmation whether this would be a good fit to test SDS, Streaming Lite on it?

Kindly advise.

    We are currently hearing of some issues with newer versions of Raspbian and particularly with Raspberry Pi 3. We have a roadmap item to support Raspberry Pi 3 and newer versions of Raspbian but we do not have a firm timeline for that support to be ready.

    With regards to Raspberry Pi A models vs B models, the B models are generally more powerful in terms of memory, etc. than the A models.
