I want to develop some services for (1) media sharing and (2) network sharing 
(http://opensharingtoolkit.org). There are a few overlapping use cases, 
including (a) on an Android tablet running as a kiosk-type device (with and 
without an internet connection) (b) on something comparable to a plug computer 
but battery+mains powered to be used as a local media exchange point & managed 
internet access point (with a 2G/3G modem) (c) cloud hosted. The second of 
these is the one that a cubieboard might fit. 

Right now I'm working on the Android use case so I'm not in a great hurry. And 
I'm still more in the position of "giving Mirage a go" for embedded service 
development than being fully committed to it :-) I haven't touched Mirage since 
January but plan to give it a go again in the next week or two, targeting Linux 
thence Android in the first instance.

I'll probably order a couple of boards anyway; I'm guessing anything labelled 
cubieboard2 will be the same(?). By default I was going to try one of the 
German resellers as there don't seem to be any UK ones yet, e.g.
