Ubuntu

Variscite released a tiny “VAR-SOM-DUAL” module starting at $46 that runs Android or Linux on a Freescale i.MX6 Dual, and offers onboard WiFi and Bluetooth.

Last November, Variscite announced a smaller version of its VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 computer-on-module called the VAR-SOM-SOLO. Whereas the VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 supports the full range of Freescale’s Cortex-A9 based i.MX6 system-on-chips, including the quad-core version, the similarly SODIMM-interfaced VAR-SOM-SOLO is limited to the single-core, i.MX6 Solo.
