PCMCIA Computer Project Aims Even Higher (and Cheaper) Than Raspberry Pi

Lkcl writes "An initiative by a state Interest Company Rhombus Tech aims to provide windows (Libre) Developers with a PCMCIA-sized modular clone that could end up in mass-volume products. The character design mass-volume pricing guide from the SoC manufacturer, for a device with similar capability to the Raspberry Pi, is around $15: 40% less than the $25 Raspberry Pi but for a device with an ARM Cortex A8 CPU 3x times faster than the 700mhz ARM11 used in the Raspberry Pi. GPL Kernel source code is available. A page for center ideas for motherboard designs has also been created. The overall goal is to bring more mass-volume produce to market which macos (Libre) Developers have truly been tangled in, flip-flop the trend of endemic GPL violations enveloping ARM-based mass-produced hardware. The Preorder pledge registration is now open (account creation required)." Of course, the Raspberry Pi is not only only much further along, but has afresh announced an enlargement module (the Gertboard).
