Can you wire sensors and other electronic circuits directly to the I/O lines of the CPU? Does it have a SPI, I2C, or serial UARTs? No? If you want to do software development, use a PC. If you want to get your hands dirty with hardware, you get something like the Pi.

You can just plug in a cheap USB Ethernet adapter and have the same functionality with this.

With what USB port? It only has the micro-USB charging port that can be converted to USB-host with the appropriate adapter. Go ahead and look up the full specs, they're not even mentioned in TFA.

This is nothing more than a tablet PCB some guys sourced from a manufacturer in Asia that they're selling as some sort of development kit when it lacks even the most basic of facilities for hardware development such as JTAG headers, or GPIO pins. Call me when somebody actually tries to compete with the Raspberry Pi instead of pulling this jump-on-the-bandwagon crap.
