Default Powerful Raspberry Pi/Arduino Alternative

Are there any powerful arm Raspberry Pi/Arduino alternatives?

I looked at the intel edison but it is obviously x86.

I want something that has ~1ghz cpu, ~1gb ram and >1gb storage. I just want something that can handle android.

Anything Close?

Android has x86 builds, you know.

Is your requirement ARM? Have you looked at the newest RPi that was released?

Well you know the RPi3 meets all the specifications you listed above...

Quad core ARM Cortex A53 @ 1.2GHz
1GB RAM
MicroSD storage (so however big of an SD card you want)

Really, well thats great! I went on wikipedia and it said at the top 700mhz.

I found a brand new r pi at £30 on ebay. Im gonna buy that, I got a good project to work on, just need to save enough money... (after I buy a new monitor, mouse and headphones )

You're probably looking at the old ones.

make sure you're looking at the newest version (Raspberry Pi 3)... Just look on Raspberry Pi's website... they're only $35USD for one, so I imagine it'd be a bit cheaper for you over the pond there.

Plus you can always overclock your Rpi 3 a little if 1.2Ghz is still not fast enough seems anywhere from 1.3 to 1.5Ghz depending on the chip.
