What do you get if you take an MK802 Android 4.0 Mini PC-like device, sell it without the case, and information that will let users connect peripherals to GPIO, JTAG, and UAR connections?
Apparently you get a device called the UPuter Pi, a credit card-sized development board that draws a bit of inspiration from the Raspberry Pi $35 mini computer. Or at least it draws its name from the Raspberry Pi.
QuickEmbed sells the UPuter Pi for $69 and up. That price gets you a device with an Allwinner A10 ARM Cortex-A8 processor, Mali 400 graphics, a microUSB port, USB port, and HDMI connector.
Models will be available with 4GB and 8GB of storage, and 512MB or 1GB of RAM.
QuickEmbed is offering a “model A” version without a case, while a “model B” mini PC with a plastic case will be available in a few months.
As a device with an Allwinner A10 processor, the UPuter Pi should be able to run a range of operating systems including Android 4.0, but also Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux-based operating systems.
