This is my imagination about next EFIKA revision:
+ onboard integrated graphic card
+ 2x internal USB headers
+ expandable RAM memory
This would give you a board that cost the same amount retail, and would be a bit bigger to fit the slot on too (SO-DIMM is quite large footprint), but have a hidden ~$50 extra cost attached to it (since you need to buy RAM too).
That really does not fit into our $99 Efika goal.
So, no. If there is a large enough order we may make 256MB or 512MB Efika boards, but we are talking of the order of some thousands, pretty much due to the minimum order quantity of RAM chips, and the extra cost of redesigning the board to suit (MPC5200B poses some technological limitations)
So far there has been very little actual demand or request for such a memory size increase (the order of single percentage points of customers)
+ 2 x PS/2 slots
No. This is 2007. No legacy ports!
