But why is this a big deal?
Basically, it is a credit-card sized ARM-SoC-based board that is capable of amazing relative graphical trickery such running full 1080p video or playing Quake3.
I want one, maybe 2, for my uses.
What’s the big deal about this to me? Well its a fully programmable board for a start, secondly, its a lot of power in a small package and third because its dirt cheap! Dirt cheap as in it will cost somewhere in the region of £25 for the full board as pictured on this page.
The possiblities are not limitless but I envision having a dumb linux terminal, kitchen PC, media center and/or dev box at low cost.
Simple workstation/Thin client?
Home automation platform?
Low power server?
Where can I get one?
