VIA's $49 Android-Based Mini-PC is No Bigger Than a Banana

Comments Filter:
  • At 17cm by 8.5cm by 3.5 cm (6.7" x 3.4" x 1.4") that's significantly bigger than most bananas I've seen...

    • And unlike the Pi (which is hard to get, but shipping) the APC is actually just vapourware, which will be "accepting pre-orders soon" and "anticipated" to start shipping in July...

      An Android 2.3 device with keyboard input and 720p output, 512MB RAM, 10/100 network with no WiFi. On the positive side, unlocked hardware, so should be able to boot debian on the thing...

      Some pictures are at [] - not really sure about that banana one, though...
