 well i figured that a Micro SD card slot would be better for the
option to be able to upgrade/replace the OS (at the risk of a speed
trade-off).  as the SO-DIMM is going to have the general-purpose
Memory Bus Address and Data lines out on it, you could always put NAND
flash on the main PCB.

 the odroid specs use 4x DDR2 chips, K4T1G084QQ-HCE7, to get 512mb DDR2.

 so, exactly the same idea: the SO-Dimm contains the CPU, memory and
NAND Flash (or SD-Card)?

 that's okay, for the most part, because people can use USB Ethernet dongles.

what about Hynix H5PS1G43EFR?  they are 1gbit DDR2, you should be able
to get them for $2.30 ea.
