A crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo proposes a new mini-PC Android, the VolksPC. Never as in this case it is entirely appropriate the term “PC”: The operating system is in fact an ad hoc deployment, the Unified Distribution, capable of running applications for Jelly Bean (4.2.2) and for Debian Wheezy. Basically you can use software for both the operating system from Google, and for Linux.
The appearance (which may not be final) is analogous to other similar solutions, while the hardware includes a dual-core CPU RK3066, operating at 1.4 GHz. Amount of RAM installed is equal to 1GB of DDR3, while we have 8GB of onboard memory and a microSD flash for Android 8GB for Debian Wheezy.
Debian is easily upgradeable, using directly the file resident on the microSD, while Android can be used to any USB port OTG, so you can run RKBatchTools on a Windows computer.
Following is a summary of the technical specifications:
Dual core Rockchip RK3066 Cortex-A9 CPU at 1.4GHz.
1 GB DDR3
8 GB NAND Flash (Android)
8 GB MicroSD (Debian Wheezy)
USB 2.0 x 2
1 USB OTG
HDMI 1.3 (apparently limited to 720p)
IEEE 802.11 b / g / n
Reader SD / MMC / MS
The Indiegogo campaign aims to raise $ 80,000 (for the time they were collected only $ 506, but the initiative is just the game). To purchase a VolksPC you need to invest $ 119.
