    Got this tasty bit of info off of hardkernel. The Korean based company, Hard Kernel (along with Samsung and LG), have developed a developer’s tablet called the ODROID-A. Along with the tablet you will also get a debug board. It features a transparent back panel, runs vanilla Android and will also get a debug board.

    The ODROID-A sports a Samsung Exynos4210 Dual Core Arm Coretx A-9 chip, 1GB memory, a 10.1 inch (1366 X 768) screen, dual cameras, and HSPA+. The ODROID-A comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is upgradeable to Honeycomb.

    The ODROID-A will be priced at $749 (US) and will be available at the end of March. It's listed for developers only at this time. Nonetheless it sure is a beauty.

    Why only for developers? I mean, that sounds like a tablet that will have no restrictions put on it by a manufacturer/carrier. It can run allt he custom roms it wants and be completely open. Is there a fee I can pay to have Developer assigned to my name so I can get one.

    could someone explain the 9-axis sensor?
    I get 6 axis: x (left-right strafe), y (forward-backward), z (up-down strafe), roll (clockwise-counterclockwise), pitch (tail up/down), yaw (right-left turning)
    what might the other 3 be?

    3-axis gyro, 3-axis accelerometer, and 3-axis magneto-resistive sensor (i.e. compass).

    thats a common misconception that those three 3-axis sensors add up to nine. but it doesn't. if its an actual 9 axis it would be what i said earlier.

    Weird, because that was all I got when I searched for 9-axis sensors... the magneto-resistive sensor.
    Someone at marketing probably realized they could call a compass 3 more axes, is what I'm thinking :D
