Perhaps I'm the last to notice this new model from Korea, but it looks quite nice and I'm sure it will be interesting to some folks here. You can get a number of attachments, like a Docking Board with TFT LCD. Certainly if you're tired of your old Raspberry Pi taking up all that desk space, this is for you.

It's called ODROID-W and you can see their web site here (http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php).

Well, it looks like that one is a fizzle. They just announced they're quitting. I kind of liked the looks of that one, but as others have pointed out, there are lots of others. Broadcom (who won't supply the chips to the Odroid folk) is coming out with a little device. BTW: I see that Pogoplugs are down to $3.99 in the US, but still $50 in Canada as far as I can tell.

There are also plenty of solutions to adding a screen to a Raspberry Pi - heres one of my Raspberry Pi's and note it is a touch screen too!

Personally one of the reasons still to choose the Pi over and above the competition is its charitable status and aims.
