Chip maker VIA as unveiled a competitor to the Raspberry Pi, an ARM-based System-on-a-Chip running Android that will cost only $49 USD (£31 GBP). Similar to the RasPi, it’s built on ARM11 architecture, however the board itself I somewhat larger, with a Neo-ITX form factor that is about twice the size.

The APC has a bit more power – first of all it has double the RAM at 512 MB, and it has a CPU that clocks slightly better at 800 MHz. As the board is much bigger, it also allows it to have a lot more ports, adding more USBs, a VGA connector, and a microSD slot replacing the full SD slot on the RasPi. It also has onboard storage of 2 GB.
