Barebones Raspberry Pi A+
« on: November 10, 2014, 08:27:04 AM »

A stripped down $20 version of the Raspberry Pi, the A+, is available. It has only one USB port but should be able to run mochad or HomeGenie with a CM19A or CM15A to make a low cost, low power HA system.

I just ordered a RPiv3 for $22 shipped.  I haven't seen on at that price before, so I bit hoping it wasn't a scam.  Generally RPi are close to $40 shipped for any version.

Running Android on the RPi will likely make things easier for many already using Android on phones/tablets...

Would running Android on the Pi.... disrupt it's ability to also run the automation programs like you linked to earlier?
