Samsung introduced its Exynos 4210 dual core 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 chip a few months ago, but so far I’ve only heard about a single tablet which will actually use the new chips. Now it looks like Samsung is hoping to make the platform a bit easier to work with. The company has teamed up with Linaro to offer a new development board called the Origen which is powered by the Exynos chip and Mali 400 graphics.
Linaro is a non-profit organization backed by ARM, Freescale, Samsung, and other chip and device makers. The Origen board is aimed at software and hardware developers looking for an affordable way to work with Android and Ubuntu Linux on a platform that can work with smartphones, tablets, and other low power devices.
The Origen board is expected to sell for less than $200 and offers 1GB of DDR3 memory, support for HDMI output or a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel LCD.
The Origen Board will be available for purchase after June 25th.
