Basically a motherboard from a tablet! Still, seems very cheap considering the number of components on the board.
Soon to be unemployed software engineer currently specialising in camera drivers and frameworks, but can put mind to most embedded tasks. Got a job in N.Cambridge or surroundings? I'm interested!

no ethernet, no gpio
Just a mainboard of a tablet, nothing special, seems to have a lot of components...
The Olimex A13 or later with the A10 will be a much better candidate.

Crappy. I don't even see a SATA port (A10 has builtin SATA controller).

I'm hoping somebody will make a proper breakout board for the A10, but so far it hasn't happened.
