In the News The Raspberry Pi has inspired a flock of competitors. Among them are the A13-OLinuXino, which you can purchase here for 45 euros. It comes with an A13 Cortex A8 processor at 1GHz, 3D Mali400 GPU, 512 MB RAM, and complete set of ports. Video is VGA. It ships Android 4.0 but also runs various Linux distros. You might also check out the $49US Cubieboard here and the UG802 for $89US here. And there's the MK802 micro-PC, a USB-sized device priced at $74US that runs Android 4.0, Ubuntu, Debian, and other distros. The tiny single-board computer has come of age.

It's all fun and games 'till your board doesn't work.
Keep in mind that the Raspberry Pi still has a lot of software ( https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues ) and hardware issues even now 8 1/2 months later and they have both dedicated and community people working at them every day making it better. I have little faith that some Chinese guys with good enough China-factory-relations to make the boards have the time and the skills to support software side too... But hey, I would love to be proved wrong.
