It’s about the size of a smartphone and about as powerful. It comes with Android 2.3
pre-installed, They’re taking pre-orders and expect to ship in July.
Awesome! I wonder if it can be re-flashed with something other than Android.
Don't even think of buying it !
Rana, are you saying in some sort of round about way that there's something wrong with the graphics hardware? Anyways, I can always think about buying anything, and in this case I probably will. ;-) Looks like a nice cheap little board to play with. Even more useful than the Raspberry.
Btw, Paul, the pre-order doesn't even work yet.
From here they're web page does not even work for me http://apc.io/ maybe too overload with the news.
For UAV applications where you don't need a monitor interface etc, the Calibri T20 is better suited. Smaller, less weight and has more power. http://www.toradex.com/Products/Colibri/Modules/Colibri-T20
John, I think there is a lot of interest to build a light weight ground station dedicated to run MP with with video input and output. (for camera input, and display). So, that would be why this thing could be useful.
A Raspberry Pi could also work, obviously. I don't know which would be better, but either would require some kind of new program, because MP won't run on Android, or Linux (well, it doesn't run well).
Well, the Android API is very straightforward and the documentation is good, so porting the current ground station is just a matter of someone volunteering. :)
There is another one
