Having spent a few months trying to source a board the closest I could come to a useful board is this pcba.
Hackberry A10 available to buy from here .
Its a small (approx 10cm x 8cm) board supporting a A10 (All Winner) cpu. After drawn out neogations with the manufacture I got them to produce me 2 boards with 1GB ram and 4GB flash which I have just received. The board by default boots Andriod 4.0 and has the following specification:
A10 All Winner
2 x USB
1 x Ethernet
1 x Wifi
1 x HDMI
1 x headphone
1 x mic
1 x component video
1 x infra red sensor
1 x 5v power socket
1 x SDHC slot
The board does seem to hold some potential as there seems to be place holders for additional connectors. Furthermore it looks like the board has a multi-purpose layout, as there seems be to markings for the SDHC connector to go on the front or back of the board, similary this also applies to the USB connectors. Sadly theres no GPIO or SATA (unlike the Mele boxes).
Here's a further update about the board.
My first attempt at booting Ubuntu and Puppy Linux is here.
