Here is Marvell's description of the processor:
The Marvell ARMADA 510 is a high-performance, highly integrated,
low-power system-on-chip (SoC) with an ARM v6/v7-compliant superscalar
processor core, hardware graphics processing unit, video decoding
acceleration hardware and a broad range of peripherals. Targeted for
smartbooks, thin clients, mobile internet devices (MIDs) and tablet
devices, this high-performance SoC answers the need for fast processing
and a rich multimedia user experience, in a low-power design that
offers quick Internet browsing, software compatibility, HD video, 3D
graphics and high-speed connectivity. Marvell’s ARMADA 510 (88AP510)
SoC gives developers a fully integrated design that provides end users
with the portability and similar battery life experience of a
smartphone, along with the multimedia, software and browser performance
of a PC.
The D2 is not a board, is a complete system with case, power supply
etc. It lists for US$250 which seems reasonable. It comes with Ubuntu
10.04 installed. Everything is open source, including graphics.
Marvell maintains the kernel patches but I think they are upstream.
