SolidRun Cubox with Ubuntu or AndroidFiled under: News;
Perhaps an alternative for those who are waiting for a Raspberry Pi. The SolidRun Cubox is running on the Marvell SoC 88AP510 system. Thanks to a ARMv7 CPU with up to 800MHz should be enough computing power available to play even HD videos without stuttering can. Delivered the Cubox date with a 2GB memory card on the large installed Ubuntu.A disk image with an optimized media center for Android is also in the works. The small box comes from Israel, however, come up to the 99 € price another 30 € customs and import taxes when shipping to Germany.
Cubox is not just in my eyes for hobbyists uninteresting. Thanks to e-SATA, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI output and two USB ports can be done with the Cubox pretty much. To use the Cubox as a NAS or a media center, nothing stands in the way. Thanks to the integrated infrared receiver can control the box without any problems on the couch with a convenient infrared remote control. The case measures just 5.5 × 5.5 × 4.2 cm and weighs only a few grams
In a video demonstration of the manufacturers on the one hand the performance and low power consumption of the other Cubox. With less than 3 watts when playing a video streamed over the network is well suited as the Cubox cheaper servers. Hobbyists need have no fear Bricken the crate Cubox can be restored even without a working boot loader. More information is available on the homepage or this PDF with the specifications.
