Initially it was hard for Carsten to find the proper version of the Android-focused Linux kernel used by this initial BQ Ubuntu smart-phone, but after he did there was lots of incompatible licenses and other proprietary/confidential statements within the tree.

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.

Head 2 Head: Android OS vs. Chrome OS

A large part of Google’s OS success hasn’t been because of its awesomeness. No. Frankly, we think nothing speaks louder than the almighty dollar in this world. But both are “free,” right? So this is tie? Not really. Although Android is technically free since Google doesn’t charge device makers for it, there are costs associated with getting devices “certified.” Oh, yeah, and then there’s Apple and Microsoft, both of which get healthy payouts from device makers through patent lawsuits. Microsoft reportedly makes far more from Android sales than Windows Phone sales. You just generally don’t see the price because it’s abstracted by carriers. Chrome OS, on the other hand, actually is pretty much free. A top-ofthe-line Chromebook is $280, while a top-of-the-line Android phone full retail is usually $600.
