very nice. shame about the cpu
These android sticks are doubling in performance every week
check out Rockchip RK3188 and also there's the new upcoming beaglebone (which RoboSavvy will be carrying)

I just tried upgrading my Rasberrypi XMBC media player to a couple of new sticks but the formal android support for XMBC and various codecs is not great so i'm stuck with the slow RPi.

Beaglebone looks very good, but in the last minute I decided to buy the Pandaboard for the CPU power, I still want to use it with Kinect / Xaction.

When will you receive it ? Have benn already published the specifications?

By the way, I just hav discovered this interesting introduction video tutorial about Beaglebone programming in C/C++:

You can get a full spec 7" android/linux tablet for about the same price with
built in multi-touch HD display. If you need more USB ports or I/O an adaptor can usually be found.
HDMI is the wrong video tech it seems to me.
Its the main reason I have no interest in the raspberry pi. It makes
it far too expensive to do anything serious with.
(yes I have a 4D systems ulcd-32 here for trial - they do work on the Pi but dont cut the mustard either price or spec wise.)
