As follow up on the topic, Raspberries Pis are all the rage lately but here's an interesting competitor...

    The PINE64 can be loaded with the latest Android software built in, or you can upload the latest version of Linux or Windows IoT. Out of the box, with Android or Remix OS installed, you immediately get access to over 1.6 million apps on the Google Play market, downloadable in a few clicks.

Main specs are a 1.2 GHz Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit Processor, dual core Mali 400 MP2 Graphics, DDR3 Memory, integrated display engine with HDMI 1.4a, and Gigabit Ethernet Port. The PINE64 is available in 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB versions, with prices ranging from USD15 to USD30.

For more info, check https://www.pine64.org/.

For a survey of various System-On-a-Chip (SOC) offers, see http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1328008.

This might be the tiniest SOC entry ever...

    The NanoPi Neo Air is a respin of the astonishingly affordable, $8 NanoPi Neo that shipped in July, and has the same 40x40mm dimensions as the Neo, making the two boards the smallest quad-core SBCs around. The Neo Air adds WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 8GB eMMC, and a DVP camera connector while sacrificing the Ethernet and USB host ports. It debuts at $18, but will eventually move to $20.
