We already have plenty of low cost Allwinner H3 development boards thanks to several Shenzhen Xunlong Orange Pi boards and FriendlyARM NanoPi boards among a few others. Here comes another one with pcDuino4 Nano.

Hmmm.. that board looks familiar…, and the specifications are exactly the as NanoPi M1 board, and actually copied / pasted from that post on CNX Software… The main difference appears to be that the PCB will be white instead of blue. I don’t know if FriendlyARM and pcDuino cooperated, and the latter simply copied the design,
but we’ll find out very soon [Update: FriendlyARM is manufacturing the board for pcDuino]. For documentation, I’ll just refer you to NanoPi M1 Wiki…
pcDuino4 Nano can be pre-ordered for $20 + shipping ($20 extra in my case) with delivery scheduled to start on September 24th. For reference, NanoPi M1 board with 1GB RAM is now sold for $16 + shipping ($5).
