Looks like a season of IoT gateways! Almost everyone announced at least some kind of device.

What I like about this one, is an 8-bit GPIO port on the front panel. Even though it's an underpowered device, that one aspect still makes it slightly better than competition.
SoC sucks, though... it's an equivalent of Allwinner A20, which is not impressive and definitely not enough for smooth media playback in 1080p (even if you manage to get an old MALI driver running on 3.xx kernel or above).
Also, no GbE and no SATA... :kookoo:
Basically a shrunk-down Cubieboard 2 in a nice enclosure.
