The other days I announced CubieTech and Olimex were working on low cost Rockchip development boards, but it turns out there’s already one on the market called Waxberrry Pi2, or WB-RK3066, made by Waxberry, a Chinese company.

The board comes with a Mini HDMI cable, a 5V/2A power supply, a USB Data cable, and a USB-serial board for debug. There’s also a CD with the board schematics, Android 4.1.1 SDK and Linux Kernel 3.x source code, Xubuntu image, and documentation which is partially in Chinese. The board is pre-loaded with Android 4.1.

You can purchase WB-RK3066 on Ebay for $129 excluding shipping, which seems a little high. They also sell it on Taobao for 499 RMB (~$81). The company has an official website http://www.wax-berry.com, where you’ll find more information, including (what looks like) how-tos and tutorials in Chinese. On another note, they also provide Waxberry Pi WB-A20, a mini PC board based on AllWinner A20.
