They should have equipped it with the RK3399 and it would been an instant buy for me. But with the RK3288 – as good as the chip is – and Android 4.x … Hello? Here is 2014 calling, we want our product back

Agreed on the RK3399.

Ubuntu support would be easy for that one.

Why should there be any difference between RK3288 and RK339 when it’s about ‘Ubuntu support’ (what’s that? It’s about the kernel and libs if you’re talking about Linux support).

I thought it was aimed at Chinese hotels. Just a cheap way to get a computer in each room; now people are used to phone OSs Android is enough.

But it’s retailing at RMB900 (~US$145), not so cheap: https://item.jd.com/22697610330.html

(The ad has an interesting pic suggesting the manufacturer is using the same SOM in many devices.)

No China software for me. Thank you. Good luck selling your souls.
