- From the campaign: "That's why both C.H.I.P. and PocketC.H.I.P. are
both TOTALLY OPEN SOURCE. This means all hardware design files
schematic, PCB layout and bill of materials are free for you the
community to download, modify and use."

- They also say that the device will have mainline support.

- Mali 400 graphics core is won't have a driver.  Not an issue for FBX.

- Wi-Fi and BT are likely to have firmware issue.  We can add additional
USB Wi-Fi as usual.

- The tiny boot firmware will be free software if other Allwinner chips
are any indication.

Should be an interesting device for FreedomBox if it fulls its promises.
