Movial were at Mobile World Congress (MWC) with the Snowball board, a new low cost, low power and high performance board for the embedded Linux community, consisting of a dual Cortex A9 processor and the MALI 400 GPU from ARM.

This board aims to be of particular use of Android and MeeGo Linux embedded developers. We are trying to get our hands on one to put it through its paces and follow up with a full review.
