We are happy to announce our first ARM port and support for RaspBerry Pi. Many thanks to the XBMC Team member Edgar (gimli) Hucek and the whole XBMC dev team for supporting us with this!This is our first ARM build and is early days but it spells yet another suite of current and future hardware that OpenELEC will support. In the future you can expect to see more and more capable ARM based hardware at low cost coming onto the market and OpenELEC will be with you all the way to integrate these devices into your home.
The RaspBerry Pi is a credit-card sized computer, running on a ARM (11) based processor, running at 700mhz and has 256MB RAM. An Ethernet connection for network/internet capability, two USB 2.0 slots, HDMI and SD-card slot.
Imagine having OpenELEC on a device that is as low in price, you could even give it to your friendly neighbour for washing your car! It is happening with the support for RaspBerry Pi's board which costs around USD35.- for model B (plus shipping/local taxes)*. Put any casing around it and you'll having a great box with the best digital media experience from OpenELEC, playing your movies at a stunning 1080p
