After the Raspberry Pi, the Gooseberry, here comes the HackBerry. This is another AllWinner board similar to the Gooseberry, but which Ethernet, a full sized USB ports, an IR sensor and 1GB RAM.
Here are the board specifications :
- SoC – AllWinner A10
- System Memory – 1 GB RAM
- Storage – 4GB Flash + SDHC slot
- USB – 2x USB 2.0 ports
- 10/100Mbit Ethernet
- Wifi – 802.11 b/g/n
- Video Output – 1 x HDMI + 1x Composite
- Audio I/O – Headphone + microphone
- IR sensor
The board runs Android 4.0, but since it’s an AllWinner device, you can run what you want. In a way it’s similar to the Mele A1000, except it has more memory, but lacks SATA, VGA output and has one less USB port. I can’t see the serial port pins on the PCB picture either.
There is pricing information or availability yet, as Jasbir only ordered 2 for now, and is looking to see if there are some persons interested by this board. I think it could be a very interesting board, if it can sell less than $60.
You can find more information on Jasbir blog.
