The SheevaPlug - Computing power in a small package!

This is a SheevaPlug. It’s an embedded computing development platform that can run several operating systems. I’m planning to install Ubuntu Linux and the latest Java SDK on my system and will use it as an application and database server for some iPhone applications that I have in mind. I purchased a 32 Gb SD card to use as primary storage. The system also has 500 Mb of RAM and 500 Mb of FLASH memory. It has a 1.2 Ghz ARM processor so you could also run Google Android on it. You can find more info at the SheevaPlug Wikipedia page. I’m still waiting for my unit to ship, lead times are 4-6 weeks in the US now. I’ll add more photos and videos here once I have my system prepped and running. Stay tuned!
