" One area where Moore's law can be seen alive and well seems to be
" the developer and small project computer world. Whether it's the
" ubiquitous Raspberry Pi, Intel's NUC, or any number of similar
" products. There's one more name to add to this list, and that's
" the ODROID-U from Hardkernel. The boards are a little more
" expensive than Raspberry Pi's impressively cheap Model A and
" Model B, but you are getting some bang for that buck. The $69
" ODROID-U comes with a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor (as
" found in the Galaxy S III and Note II, 1GB of RAM, quad-core Mali
" 400 graphics, micro-HDMI, a brace of USB ports, a headphone jack
" and Ethernet. If you want a little more oomph, for an extra $20
" you can have the RAM doubled, and a 1.7GHz core with the
" ODROID-U2 model. There's one stat you might notice missing which
" is flash memory. There's no onboard storage, so you'll have to
" bring your own memory for the built-in microSD slot. As the
" ODROID name suggests, the boards can run Android, as well as a
" variety of Linux flavours. Sound good? In a reverse of what you
" might expect, the ODROID-U2 will be available first, starting
" December 21st, with the cheaper board pencilled in to arrive on
" January 16th.

The CPU is a Samsung Quad-core ARM chip. Ethernet is only 10/100Mbps.
Board has 2GB RAM.
Given the onboard 4-core Mali-400 Quad Core 440MHz graphics, this seems
more like something that could be used in a home theater system given
the microHDMI video output and the HDMI digital audio output.
