Thank you for Clive Boulton's recommendation. We'll passing this along if you would like to learn Android and Java in a miniature computer instead of a smart phone. You can attend Plugin Developer Camp and enter the contest.
At PlugIN, you will get to spend a full day with the best and brightest minds from the Plug Computer ecosystem. From hands-on development training to exploring more about the Plug Computer supply chain - get ready to experience a brainstorm of technology.http://www.plugcomputer.org/
Contest winners to receive free Ionics Plug
Amahi's theme/app contest is open to registered Amahi.org developers, who are encouraged to produce an Amahi theme or app and submit it by Aug. 22. Six winners will be announced the next day.
Each winner will receive a Ionics Stratus Plug Computer (pictured above right, and at left), with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Z-Wave, for wireless home controls, says Amahi.
One of several Plug Computer-based Ionics Plug devices, the Stratus device also offers first-generation Plug Computer reference design such as the 1.2GHz Marvell 88F6000 ("Kirkwood") SoC. The first-gen Plug Computer also offers 512MB of DRAM, 512MB of flash, and a gigabit Ethernet port.
The Plug Computer design has been used in a wide variety of networking server products, including Cloud Engines' popular Pogolug. It has also been supported with a variety of open source software customized for it, including the Real Time Logic (RTL) BarracudaDrive application web server.
In January, Marvell started sampling a Plug Computer 3.0 design (pictured at right). The new version features a 2GHz Marvell Armada 300 processor, and adds built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a hard disk drive. At the time, Marvell said that Plug Computer 3.0 development kits would be available through Plug Computer vendors such as Ionics, as well as Globalscale Technologies, and Universal Scientific Industries Co.
