MK802 - cheaper and faster than Raspberry Pi
« on: October 25, 2012, 10:24:25 am »
This is just a short FYI for those that missed this.

There is an awesome comparison between Raspberry Pi and MK802 on youtube [1], and MK802 is priced 40$ [2] right now, which is dirt cheap, and even better it is readily available, there is no waiting like for Raspberry Pi in most of the world.

Also there seams that new and more powerful mk808[3] are also available, but I'm not sure if it is also 100% linux compatible like mk802.

These small devices run android and linux so they would make excellent linuxmce

I have one of these as well as some Raspberry Pi, I plan on testing the android qOrbiter on it but haven't gotten around to it yet.
If one was to ditch android and run linux you need to provide a LAN->USB adapter for netbooting MD.
