ODROID C1 review

Filed under
Android
Reviews

The ODROID C1 is a true alternative to the Raspberry Pi 2. It costs the same but brings Gigabit Ethernet, the option of using a high-speed eMMC storage module, and support for Android!

The Single Board Computer (SBC) movement is still going strong and with the recent release of the Raspberry Pi 2, it doesn’t seem as if it will lose any of its current momentum. The key selling point of the Raspberry Pi has always been its price. While there are lots of other companies that make these nimble little boards, there aren’t that many who seem to be able to match the Pi’s price point. Of course, some of the boards are only slightly more expensive than the Pi and do offer more functionality. For example, the MIPS Creator CI20 costs just $65 and includes built-in Wi-Fi and 8GB of on-board storage, two things missing from the Pi.

This is the first time Samsung has ditched the Qualcomm Snapdragon for its very own Exynos processor. It seems to be a good decision now that there's a demo video proof that the Samsung Exynos 7 is faster than the A8 processor used on the iPhone 6.

Android Auto product manager Daniel Holle told Brazilian newspaper Folha de São Paulo that the launch is planned for later in the year, however a specific date is yet to be defined as car manufacturers still need time to integrate the software to their vehicles.

Android Auto is a system that works with an Android 5.0+ device and a car's head unit or infotainment platform. It allows users to call, get directions, listen to music and a range of other functions while driving.
