What would you do with it?
It might be handy in a car application. small LCD display that supports 720p/HDMI built into the dash, with this driving it. Smiley

Maybe future plugs should use ARM 7. My Droid does after all... Tongue
Or ARM 11 or a multi-core Cortex-A9. Cheesy

Needless to say, we all need to remember that these devices are designed for headless automation and server purposes, and not really for use directly by end users.
Except the version we are talking about has an HDMI port (for digital video and audio).  This implies it could output directly to an HDTV and could make use of a relatively complete OS (including a UI).  I would rather run an Android mid build on this than Ubuntu; but, I can't seem to find out if the integrated graphics support OpenGL ES acceleration.

I just really want them to stick that 2ghz CPU in there... they've been talking about this forever. I'm bored with this current generation of CPU technology.

Yes, how much $ and when? Also, please don't take 4 weeks to ship. Smiley

Well good luck getting anything from Globalscale THAT fast.

I've been waiting almost 2 months, they don't answer emails or return phone calls.

Ever heard of Pogo Plug?  This is a multimedia server centric embedded device. not a "plug," but close.

Yes I have.  I've seen those on display at our local CompUSA store.  I believe that is a "Plug" in a different box with pre-defined software.  While interesting, it is not what we are discussing on this thread. Wink

The feature is cool. But it seems quite lack in GPS and make sure about the power supply. Is the internet access clear to this?

Jessica - These appear to be intended to be plugged into the wall mains (AC) so why would lack of GPS be a limiting factor?  Are you thinking this would be good as a car PC?  If so, you probably want to change the power supply since going from DC to an inverter (AC) to DC would be less efficient than DC to DC.

I don't understand what you are asking in your last question.  Sorry. Sad

The commercial link at the bottom of her post appears to be spam. Sad

Dear jessica_l,

I hope that you are a human and not a bot (I find it hard for a bot to answer such an intelligent post).
I removed the ads in your post, please don't abuse the forums !!!!

Well looking around their site, I found some information...
The GOOD news is that they are all over the place, Buy.com Amazon, even NewEgg, and I found the price as low as 79.99 USD.

the BAD news is that many of the reviews on Amazon are fraudulent entries from employees or paid 'shills'. As it turns out that the wonderful glowing reviews are from people who have never reviewed anything else, ever.   Undecided  The newer reviewers noted this so proceed with caution.

sigh ...
