If only they can pack in a HDMI port… this little baby will be flawless!

2.0 GHz Arm-based processor

Wifi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet, Mini-USB port and “Ready to download” Linux 2.6 SDK for developers.

Low power, low price, small form factor

[CES 2010] Marvell has just launched its Computer 3.0 platform based on the Armada 300 processor. New the system still uses an ultra-low power and thermal envelope, but manages to reach 2Ghz and includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and built-in 1.8″ hard drive. The overall package is also much smaller (and sexier) than previous generations. Once again the semi-conductor mantra “smaller, better, cheaper” is beautifully applied by Marvell to these tiny computers. Developers can already get their hands on the SDK, and we’ve heard that a number of big-name brands are working on products based on Plug Computer 3.0.
