    It costs US$89 (£57) but is much more powerful than the Raspberry Pi.

    Looks good - up to date Android and enough power to run stuff properly. If I didn't already have a HTPC I might have considered this.

    Looks a lot more attractive than the raspberry pi, at least my 256MB version. Even overclocked XBMC does not run nearly this smooth.

    Agree, RPi with XBMC is painful... Takes all fun away!
