Okey dokey .. well the Pi doesn't currently run Android (well), so that's out.
The following list shows the major components planned for the Parallella computer: Dual-core ARM A9 CPU Epiphany Multicore Accelerator (16 or 64 cores) 1GB RAM MicroSD Card USB 2.0 (two) Two general purpose expansion connectors Ethernet 10/100/1000 HDMI connection Ships with Ubuntu OS Ships with free open source Epiphany development tools that include C compiler, multicore debugger, Eclipse IDE, OpenCL SDK/compiler, and run time libraries. Dimensions are 3.4'' x 2.1'' Once completed, the Parallella computer should deliver up to 45 GHz of equivalent CPU performance on a board the size of a credit card while consuming only 5 Watts under typical work loads. Counting GHz, this is more horsepower than a high end server costing thousands of dollars and consuming 400W.
a 16-core Epiphany-III chip in the $99 ‘basic’ version, or a 64-core Epiphany-IV chip in the $199 ‘advanced’ version which will only be produced if a certain funding goal is met.
Wow indeed. If those boards go into production, I'll buy 2 of them. Like Mark though, I think the big corps will try to stamp on them though.
Open Source: The Parallella platform will be based on free open source development tools and libraries. All board design files will be provided as open source once the Parallella boards are released.
Also, Maplin have starting selling the RasPi plus a starter kit for £70. http://www.maplin.co.uk/raspberry-piandreg-board-and-starter-kit-652805
I just want to give u a comfirm that Ubantu could working on our board.I am sorry for delay response.Pls feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
One of the most common suggestions we’ve heard since launch is that we should produce a more expensive “Model C” version of Raspberry Pi with extra RAM. This would be useful for people who want to use the Pi as a general-purpose computer, with multiple large applications running concurrently, and would enable some interesting embedded use cases (particularly using Java) which are slightly too heavyweight to fit comfortably in 256MB.
