June 6 2013 - Wandboard at Computex Taipei
We are at Computex 2013 in Taipei and the Wandboard i.MX6 Quad is on display at the Freescale Booth (WTC Hall 1 booth A0703).
May 27 2013 - Wandboard Quad
Sorry for not posting many updates in the past weeks. However the whole team has been extremely busy with updating software (Ubuntu, Linux, Android Jellybean). A lot of the updates have been posted in the past weeks and we hope you all like the progress. We still encourage you all to submit patches. It's not a one way road.
Today we have an exciting update. Wandboard Quad and it's a big update. We not only update the Freescale i.MX6 to a Cortex-A9 Quadcore (that is 4 cores at 1Ghz) but the Freescale i.MX6Quad also integrates the Vivante GC2000 videocore adding higher graphic performance. We took one more step by also doubling the memory to a total 2GB DDR3.
The current status is that we have 60 working samples in our hands and a production run of Wandboard Quad's will ship to distributors early June.

March 11 2013 - Wandboard Usage Poll
With 46.7% (321/688) multimedia players and streaming solutions were clearly taking the lead.
We are only wondering if one of the 37 people that voted to create a coffeemachine out of the Wandboard is already successful in achieving his task. If you do so.
Please send us pictures, sourcecode software and tell us how the coffee taste. You can do so in the forums and we will ask you to write a post about it that will be featured on the Wandboard homepage.
February 23 2013 - How the Wandboard Enclosure was made
So you got yourself a Wandboard with enclosure and you are wondering how a mold is actually manufactured in order to make a simple plastic enclosure.
The pictures above show the process after the 3D files are created and the "actual work" starts where a design is turned from a computer screen to a real life 3D product manufacturing tool. The whole process took a bit over a month.
From Left to Right (Top row)
1. calculating moldflow for the enclosure's design
2. first milling of the tool
3. EDM parts (the other EDM: Electric discharge machining)
4. EDM process
From Left to Right (Bottom row)
5. After the EDM (bottom)
6. After EDM (top)
7. final tool
8. Tool inside the injection molding machine (the parts that stick out are the ejector pins)
