Hi Katie,

Looking at the specs and their own comparison with Raspberry Pi, I note the following... while Goosberry has a more powerful CPU, they currently only support Android ICS. Their note on Linux is that while it could run it, it's currently without acceleration. Depending on their GPU, there may be no free code available to get that done. So, as a processor it could be (more) interesting, but if you need the video output in the way the Raspberry can handle heavy stuff with ease, the Gooseberry as it stands now does not qualify.
