cubieboard2 is here

Hi, I am a glad to announce that cubieboard2, a upgrade of current cubieboard, is ready to ship now.

 Thanks to Allwinner’s pin-to-pin compatible A20 chip with A10, we can do a seamless hardware upgrade to the current cubieboard. Just replacing one chip(well, the most important one) and we can upgrade from a single core to a dual core and twice gpu performance, and even no change is needed on the PCB. So all the base boards, accessories that works with cubieboard will also fit in with cubieboard2.
