      " 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.

        I found some more details at Hardkernel's website:

        <http://www.hardkernel.com/renewal_2011/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G135341370451>

        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.
