"Announced today, the open source community will be
able to buy the Snowball development boards that use ST-Ericsson's
AP9500 chipset and run free open source software and tools that
have been optimized by Linaro.
"Software developers now have access to application processors
that can provide the performance of a PC with the power footprint
of mobile. Combining dual core Cortex-A9 and Mali GPU processors
with open source software that has been optimized by Linaro offers
software developers the option to create code and products on a
platform that costs less than a netbook, has better performance and
sustains battery life longer."
