Running on an 800 MHz VIA core.
VIA has introduced an amazing $49 APC Android computer, the 170 x 85mm 'APC' is expected to ship this July.
VIA has announced a new APC computer. This one is a $49 Android based system, and runs on an 800 MHz VIA core.
The board measures 170 x 85mm and is expected to ship this July. It also has 2GB of flash storage and 512MB of DDR3 memory.
The APC computer is a $49 Android system based on the brand new Neo-ITX form factor which measures in at roughly half the size of standard Mini-ITX based motherboards. It features an 800MHz ARM SOC (VIA WonderMedia ARM 11 SoC) with 512MB of DDR3 memory and 2GB of onboard flash memory for storage. A modified version of Google Android 2.3 uses up most of that 2GB of flash storage, but there are external storage options. On the back I/O is a microSD slot and of course you could hook in an external USB 2.0 drive. VIA spent a lot of time customizing Android to enable keyboard and mouse support which natively it does not support. The system also comes with the modified apps such as a YouTube player, Angry Birds, a file manager, web browser and more.
VIA will be selling the APC directly on http://www.apc.io. Pre-orders will begin very soon!
