The PCB is manufactured for use in a tablet but it's got all the necessarily connectors (doesn't have Ethernet but hey what do you expect in a pcb designed for tablet use) for use in a desktop/set-top implementation...for $27 (more than likely in volume) not bad....http://micdigi.com/2012/03/the-allwinner...-about-27/

similar product here: http://micdigi.com/2012/04/7-inch-a10-pc...on-screen/

What I want to know is why can't someone start a kickstarter or something and customize one of these boards for an XBMC console to replace the old xbox as standard reference hardware?

I'm not a business guy, but I'd imagine quite a few of us would buy an officially supported settop box with the ability to do emulation games integrated into the system. (Bring your own roms obviously.) Of course there are some games available for XBMC already, the ankroid clone and the media triva come to mind...

And since Android already comes built for these boards, I wonder how hard it would be to get games running fullscreen from within the XBMC interface? Clearly I'm not a programmer either, so I don't know how hard it would be to do, but I imagine some of the work Canonical is doing with Ubuntu for smartphones would be instructive there?

Given that these boxes are being manufactured already and new ones based on this chip seem to be released weekly then is there a need for a kickstarter project?
