LeMaker Cello availability?


#1

Where and when can I buy a LeMaker Cello?

See http://www.96boards.org/product/cello/ -> http://www.lenovator.com/product/103.html

The descriptions says “The LeMaker Cello is now only accept the pre-order, and the scheduled ship time is in Q2 of 2016.”

I know, it is a joke. First AMD HuskyBoard, then that was canned and replaced with LeMaker Cello, and then they couldn’t even get the PCIe to work. I don’t know how long they plan to sell the preorders for something that does not even yet exist. They might have canned it but still have left the preorder page open. I really want this - I am looking for an ARMv8 SBC with decent performance, and I/O bandwidth. And preferably PCIe because I want to try real desktop cards in for compatibility, in the hope that one day we can abandon X86 in favour of something much more efficient. The closest is the Hikey 960 with PCIe in an M.2 slot - but the LeMaker Cello looks way better.
