MuyComputer our colleagues say, the Taiwanese manufacturer VIA Technologies has put up for sale (in store) a mini-PC under Android 2.3 operating system with an extremely attractive price of $ 49.
Similar to developments such as the Raspberry Pi, or something more expensive, the alternative NUC Intel x86, the VIA APC is a plaque in Neo-ITX format (170 x 85 mm) , a form factor chassis supports Mini-ITX and MicroATX.
APC system includes a single chip (SoC) WonderMedia VIA ARM 11 800 MHz microprocessor, together with 512 MB of DDR3 RAM and 2 GB of Flash memory for internal storage expandable via microSD memory cards .
consumes 13.5 watts
at full load (4 watts minimum) and includes a number of ports, four USB 2.0, Ethernet 10/100 LAN, VGA video outputs and HDMI, and input / output audio.
interesting device is probably a direct rival of Raspberry Pi , which sells for about $ 35 but gives direct support for Linux distributions like Arch Linux, Fedora or Debian, and other Open Source applications . No one knows what this device is closed and if VIA will install Linux distros for ARM, but if so this solution would win no doubt many integers. In MuyComputer you have more details on this promising VIA mini PC.
