    Really, it seems they're aiming at people who need RAM, USB, serial, and audio jacks...but not removable or expandable storage.
    And that is the big deal breaker, in my book.
    It also seems to be underpowered and overpriced.

    I suspect that lacking an SD/microSD slot will damage its viability as a prototyping platform, since it eliminates any products where those are desired.
    Umm...


    Upper right of the board. The silk-screening says SD1.

      Thanks for that. I read the page, saw all the ports and so on, didn't see any reference to an SD card,
      and figured that they would have mentioned it at least once in that long a page if they had one.

        Smells to me like VIA is not getting much traction with their current spin of the wondermedia platform. It definitely cannot compete with the allwinner, mediatek or rockchips of today. Not in terms of price/performance, features, and definitely not in the form of hackable designs...
