Android wear 10 inch necklace.
Flavor Flav style.

maybe because it is cheap? performance wise it is still comparable to snapdragon 800. and with 10 inch device the battery might not much of an issue.

Comparable to SD 800? I've seen numerous comparisons between the two and Tegra 4 is much better, other than battery optimization. It's in the range of 801, if not even better.

in general both are quite neck to neck. clock for clock the A15 is faster than krait. the only problem was power consumption which is not entirely nvidia fault. GPU wise the adreno 330 have more raw power and have OpenGL ES 3.0 support but driver efficiency is better on tegra 4. even on OpenGL ES 2.0 nvidia drivers can perform better than adreno:
before anyone complaining that Z Ultra have much higher resolution than Tegra Note 7 the emu was not running at device native resolution. instead it is 2 times of original PSP resolution which way lower than 720p

"but no accelerometer, barometer, [b]GPS[/b]..."
isn't that tegra 4 have built in GPS?
"it is listed with OpenGL ES 2.0, which is more associated with Android Wear"
android wear built or not tegra 4 only support upto OpenGL ES 2.0

Sounds pretty fake, unless it's some kind of laptop (which is VERY unlikely).

"and Android L will be adding support for OpenGL 3.1."
On supported hardware only, i.e midgard ARM Mali GPUs (T604 or newer) or the Tegra K1's SMX. None of the current Adreno 300 series will support it due to shader model limitations considering how architecturally inferior Adreno is compared to Mali. None of those S800/801 devices will even support ES3.1 or Android Extension Pack (AEP), it's a dead end for anything older than Snapdragon 805 considering that only the Adreno 400 series will benefit from all the graphical improvements of Android "L". After all, Qualcomm doesn't care about their previous SoC/Adreno lineup.

Snapdragons are marketing gimmicks. Even Adreno 330 isn't better than Mal T628 in real gaming while the latter looses in almost every synthetic bench.

The name "foo" strongly suggests to me that this is some kind of prototype or test device, based on that word's use in beta testing.

It is probably a device as a mid-console for a car.
