The Cubietruck is an upcoming mini-computer with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor, up to 2GB of RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, and WiFi and Bluetooth built in.
While it’s not the most powerful device of it’s type, the Cubietruck does have a few tricks up it sleeve, including out-of-the-box support for both Google Android and Ubuntu Linux.
Over the past year or two we’ve seen dozens, possibly hundreds of tiny desktop computers with ARM-based processors hit the street. The makers of the Cubieboard figured they could do better, and released a tiny PC last year with a faster CPU.
