The manufacturer has now released the A2000, which appears to have almost the same specifications. Details:

The A2000 can be ordered from here:

Power Supply for HDD

"I think they use a 5V/2A power supply to make sure there is enough power for any 2.5" hard drive. If you don't use an hard drive, the power consumption would be much lower. The USB keyboard (and mouse) would also be powered by the same power supply, so the only extra power supply you need is for the display.

update from the 1000 site
Username: scsijon
"[Update: On the mailing list: Summary: the A10 machines are unbrickable. 1. you can always update nand with livesuite, even the nand flash is blank. 2. you can use a special sd card image to flash nand no matter firmware on nand is ok or not 3. The sd card boot priority is higher than nand, so if there is a bootable image on sd card, nand is ignored.

"You don't really need the 2 cables. The USB cable is not really needed (unless you want to debug Android app and/or update the bootloader) and the UART cable won't be needed once the framebuffer console is enabled. ] You can get further development resources at the end of the post “AllWinner A10/A1X Processor Resources, Development Board and SDK” in arm-netbook mailing list developers hacking the Mele A1000 discuss.

"raffys new sub $100 mips clone saw it in the shops yesterday but it was approx $130. wondering if it does multi-tasking, unlike ipad i believe. my eeepc has started purring on occasion.i think the fan has dislocated something, so i may be tempted to get a camera included novo7 model.price is right. set-top boxes aren't for me because i dont pay extra for rooms with a TV that i dont watch.
