1GHz CPU/ 1GB Flash(16bit ECC)/ 512MB RAM/ HDMI/ USB 2.0/ 4.3"LCD/Android 4.0.
Mini210S-SDK43 Includes 4.3" LCD and accessories including HDMI cable.
The Mini210S is a smaller simpler Mini210. The 11 by 11 cm size matches the older Mini6410 and can mount the same H43i 4.3” LCD. Keeping with the Sense and Simplicity FriendlyARM philosophy, the neat layout and small size is convenient for a host of applications. The Mini210S has 512 MBytes of DDR2 RAM with full 32 bit data bus, 1 GBytes of SLC NAND Flash (16 bit ECC), and the Samsung S5PV210 System On Chip at 1GHz clock speed. Contact ARMWorks for OEM versions and quantity pricing.
There is a Class D Amplifier, WM8960, that will drive a 1 watt 8 ohm speaker with ease. A mini HDMI connector can drive large displays and signage with graphics that range from static to video at 1080P. USB 2.0 supports cameras among other things, and a header provides for an 8x8 keyboard matrix. Power circuits provide for low power standby modes. The price/performance makes the Mini210S a great candidate for the Internet of Things, Kiosks, Smart Home, Scientific Instrumentation, Automotive applications, and any embedded requirements that will benefit from Internet connections.
The mature Superboot system lets you update or completely reprogram the system from a specially prepared SD card. No laptop or other equipment needed!

ReggieUK has provided a away to get Google Play and some video players up and running. Thanks Reggie!
installing gapps, google play on the Mini210S Android 4
The mini210S doesn't have google play or the other google apps (gapps) installed, without it you can't access google play (used to be known as android market), there are chinese app. market programs, unfortunately I cannot read chinese (maybe one day?), so getting google play on there is useful for any Western Mini210S developers, easy access to a trusted application source :)
Looking at all of the tutorials and rooting tools, apps, downloads, it's pretty easy to get confused as to exactly what to do, it turns out that getting the 'gapps' package installed on your mini210S is incredibly simple!!
1. download gapps-ics-20120429-signed.apk or .zip from somewhere on the net, google it, cyanogen keep gapps. up to date.
2. Unpack it somewhere (if it's an apk you should still be able to open it with winrar or 7zip etc.) and copy the system folder into a folder called Download on a fat partition on a microSD card, it's about 50MB so pretty much any card will do.
3. connect to your Mini210S via serial console, I use linux and a terminal console app. called minicom, set at 115200 baud, 8N1, you can use con1 with a usb to serial adapter, pin 6 is on the left!! please refer to the UART section of the user manual.
4. Now you've connected to the mini210S we can copy the files we put on the SD card to where they need to be, in your terminal app. do the following and hit enter:
cp -r /sdcard/Download/system/* /system/
5. reboot the mini210S and use google play.
If you go into your apps menu, you should now see google play is present, it's a shopping bag with an arrow head pointing right! Once you've found it, click on it, you should now be presented with a bunch of options like logging in with a google account or signing up. I already had an account, so I used that, I clicked through the login screens adding my google email and password, at that point it tried to connect but seemed to fail, so I rebooted, tried again, seemed to fail, rebooted and it worked, you may or may not need to clear the cache for google play in the apps manager but it seems like rebooting a couple of times is enough.
If you had previously installed flash player, you may need to uninstall it and reinstall it from google play, no idea why it messes with it but after gapps is installed, the iplayer website complains that I needed flash installing.
To get Flash player working, check the blog herre.
