It runs a very recent kernel (3.18, IIRC).
​  The devel prototype originally ran OpenWrt; should be pretty easy to
make OpenWrt run on it again.  Has a speaker on it (so you can do proof of
actual presence to help bootstrap security stuff).  Ath10k wireless.  Has a
TPM module on board, so you could do a poor man's hsm for storing keys.​

​ Android style unlockable bootloader.​  The intent is it be an open
platform. Has a hardware packet assist engine: there will be the usual
issues of latency vs. bandwidth; not much use of that this instant.

Current software admin is done entirely via Android apps and a google back
end: no web gui for it at the moment (Trond isn't comfortable with a web
server on the router).  Secure upgrade of the firmware.
                                                    - Jim
