The Hardkernel ODROID-C1 features an Amlogic S805 SoC that features a 1.5GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A5 processor and Mali 450MP2 graphics. This board also has 1GB of DDDR3 memory, Gigabit Ethernet, 40 GPIO pins, eMMC / microSD storage, four USB 2.0 ports, and one USB OTG port. While coming in close to the size and price, the specs of the ODROID-C1 are far superior to the Raspberry Pi with a better SoC, double the RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, and an extra USB port.

I've always wanted something like this to run Android with a mouse and keyboard. Why? Well, why not? Seems like it could be fun.

Nope, PowerVR GPU, closed source. The best you can find, fully open, is boards based on Samsung S3Cxxxx's serie (S3C2410, S3C2440, S3C6410, ...)

Look for the OK6410-B on Aliexpress, pretty expensive board for a 566 MHz CPU with only 256 MB RAM, but these are fully open, even the FIMG GPU driver with OpenGLES 2 support is available on XDA.
