Cool and interesting...

As long as we mentioned it... Have you considered using UDOO that has very horsepower?

Hi,
I Must admit i didn't know that udoo existed : )
The Problem is that it has the Same hw Architecture as the amiqube and the amiqube is only 5x5x5cm including Case.
We still need to finish the deal....

The amiqube will not offer gpio but it has wifi, sata, Infrared and optical audio out.
Price will be around 99€ depending on Roms / os combinations.
CPU/ gpu is the Same as the dualcore udoo.

Amiqube and only 99 €uro and only 5x5x5 cm???

Sound sweet!

Well at least now you know also of UDOO, so you are free to make agreements with its creators even to release another minicomputer AROS based, and this time with gpio too, if you desire to give users this feature as bonus...
