Gooseberry takes on Raspberry Pi with $62 Android-based PC

The Raspberry Pi had better watch its back because there’s a new kid on the block that’s aiming to steal its thunder in the market for low-cost computers. Tom’s Hardware reports that Gooseberry’s new Gooseberry Board computer will sell for $62 and will have significantly better specs than the Raspberry Pi, including “a 1 GHz overclockable A10 processor, a 400 MHz Mali processor, 4 GB of on-board storage as well as Android 4.03 ICS” in addition to 512MB of RAM. Don’t expect to see the Gooseberry Board on Best Buy (BBY) shelves anytime soon, though, as Gooseberry is initially limiting its production of the Android-based computer to 500 units.
