The board is said to ship with a DVD including drivers, as well as a short installation manual. The company provide support for Linux and Android 4.2, but overall at least with the info available on their website, they make an dismal job at providing information for their board, as zero documentation is available.
The company offers two models: FTA201G8GW with WiFi, and FTA201G8GWBG adding Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS to the previous model. You won’t find much more information on the product page, but you could contact the company there if you are interested.
