The developer of the beautiful and attractive Nitrux, Compass, and Flatter icon themes is preparing an ARM mini-computer called QtBox, designed to be portable, small (8.8cm x 8.8cm x 8.3cm), running the Nitrux 1.0 operating system, and using the eye-candy KDE 4.12 desktop environment.

Being built on open hardware, QtBox offers a great build quality, a Quad-core 2.0GHz Exynos 4412 CPU, a Mali 400 GPU, 2 GB RAM, 8/16/64GB internal storage, Ethernet, 3x USB ports, a micro-HDMI port, a micro-USB port, 3.5mm jack, and Micro SD slot.

Apparently, the QtBox mini-computer from Nitrux has an affordable price-tag, $200 (€148) for the 8GB version, $225 (€167) for the 16GB model, and $275 (€204) for the 64GB edition. Of course, you can always add an SD card, up to 64GB, for more storage.

Pre-orders have already started, so make sure you order your QtBox mini-computer on its official website. Shipping is expected in late Q1 2014 for North, Central, and South America, and the rest of the world will get it in Q3 2014.
