The company will offer support for both Android 7.1 and Linux, but when asked about the SDK I was told that “SDK could be down load from our indicating link”. If you are confused, so I was, but after deep mediation, I saw the light, and it probably means that they’ll provide download links for the SDK to their customers only.

The kit comes with an acrylic case, and antennas for WiFi and Bluetooth. I don’t have any confirmation about the price, but the board is listed on Alibaba for $149.99. We’ll soon find out more as the company intends to send a sample for review.
