65 hours remaining for this 19-29$ Kickstarter project w/ Allwinner A64:
I found the HiKey:
which is $75 (or $99 in 2GB RAM version), plus shipping.
Note there are two HiKey versions, those prices will be the LeMaker one.
It might be the best option bootloader wise, but Alex complained the
upstream kernel drivers were still few. Haven't received mine yet.
DragonBoard 410c is the other 96Board at ~75$. As mentioned in another
recent post its boot process is fairly complex and U-Boot is just
emerging as alternative to LK.
Andromeda Box Edge with Marvell IAP140 (PXA1908) has just started
shipping at ~75$; no upstream kernel work to be found yet, and didn't
find the vendor U-Boot sources yet.
There are further 96Boards announced, including the Bubblegum with
Actions Semi S900 and the HuskyBoard with AMD Opteron A1100, but no
prices or dates yet.
One drawback of all Consumer Edition 96Boards is that they don't have an
RJ45 on-board, just wireless, so you'll need to count in a USB Ethernet
adapter unless you can and want to use Wifi. HuskyBoard (or whatever it
gets called in the end) would be the first Enterprise Edition 96Board,
offering more connectors but likely at higher price.
The GeekBox is a nicely hackable box with Rockchip RK3368 at ~99$. Just
submitted a .dts patch upstream earlier today. U-Boot for now is an ugly
vendor version, but I expect that to resolve itself over time.
Various TV boxes with Rockchip RK3368 or Amlogic S905 are available from
China in the ~60-120$ range. Expect vendor U-Boot or kernel limitations
and no schematics.
