ARM-based Mini HTPCs Are Coming

Pegatron, an off shoot of ASUS, recently showed off a prototype tiny low power HTPC built using an ARM processor and Nvidia's new Tegra 2. The unit itself includes HDMI, Ethernet, microphone and speaker plugs on the back and the Tegra 2 chip can decode 1080p and Flash video. This particular model is designed to run Windows CE or Google Android but it's possible other manufactures will incorporate full Linux Distros like Ubuntu For Arm and include either Boxee or XBMC software for a full Linux HTPC experience. Although no price has been set yet you can expect these units to be quite a bit cheaper than their Intel Atom based counterparts like the Acer Revo($350 US with Windows 7 Home Premium).
