Hot on the heels of the Raspberry, VIA reveals APC, a Neo-ITX based barebone that will be sold for just $49. The motherboard is compatible with Mini-ITX and Macro-ATX cases, it features a VIA 800MHz CPU, 512MB RAM, 2GB flash memory, integrated graphics (720p), a custom edition of Android 2.3, HDMI, four USB ports, audio in/out, microSD support, Ethernet, and a 15W power adapter. VIA's APC will start shipping in July.
VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient computing platforms, today unveiled the $49 APC Android PC system.

Powered by a WonderMedia ARM processor, APC integrates memory, storage, and a full set of consumer I/O features in a small footprint Neo-ITX motherboard that can be connected to a TV or monitor.
