Taken from the FAQ:
What is the Gooseberry Board?
The Gooseberry Board is a small sized tablet PCBA computer which can be
connected to a TV and/or an LVDS display. Based on a newer arm architecture,
the board can run a multitude of different programs and Os’s ,most notably
Android ICS and Ubuntu. These are currently the only two Os’s compatible
with the board but many more can be expected to be supported soon such as
Arch Linux. In terms of performance, the boards cpu, an allwinner a10 1.0Ghz
Soc, is roughly 3x more powerful than the SOC shipped with the Pi. A Mali
400 gpu is also shipped with the board which is expected to have open source
driver support in the near future.
How much will it cost?
The Gooseberry board is aimed to be sold at £40 with a charger. Please note,
if you live outside of the EU, additional import taxes may apply.
