Cardboard? Not very durable, is it? Hopefully it's as sturdy as the cover of those hardcover books. Also, honestly, who has seen a VIA product 'on the shelves'? They have practically zero presence.

I really do need this.
It would be perfect for my in-car back seat entertainment system as long as it still supports touch displays (or I could install a track ball for left & right seats into the centre console in the back seat if not - both back seats have screens).
I'd stick a cheapy $100 switch in the boot with a small NAS with maybe 2 240GB SSD's with a lot of music and a bunch of movies for long road trips.


Edit: What's with this 3 of the same comments thing??

512MB RAM because clearly 2GB is just way too much /sarcasm

Try about 10 years ago with FlexATX.

Should be good enough for a facebook/email machine, I guess.

512MB is not enough Android needs 1GB minimum to avoid lag. Core speed needs to be over 1 GHz no matter how many cores.

I don't understand why the vendors out there keep insisting on making products with low specs. Any good android device MUST have at least 2 cores, running at more than 1Ghz, and at least 1GB of ram. Anything under those specs is just not enough IMHO.
