Linuxium is pretty handy, especially the SD card/USB boot options.

Actually the SD Card Linux was popular on the early TV Sticks, but performance and usability was diabolical. hence Linaro came into use...

Loathe to say it but the need for Pi Android is negated !!


Ebay UK have 'new other' MK809 III TV Sticks for under £30.00 (EU Plug)

Chinese stores have them cheap too. I wonder what RK3288 will bring. They want it in Chromebooks so non-Android Linux must have full support for that SoC (so that Youtube becomes usable and stuff like that). But on the other site Intel (and AMD?) wants mobile devices too and their Bay Trail gets quite cheap while being quite efficient and x86.
