Hello ,

I would like to know which Pandaboard ES is suitable for learning it , I saw 1055-1003-ND part number , Can I install Android/Ubuntu on it ?

What is the basic differences between the various models of Pandaboard ES ?

Thanks ,

Avoid this board, it's not supported anymore.

You may want to look to a Raspberry Pi, a Beagleboard or a Freescale.

A lot depends on what you want to learn!

As an educational tool the Raspberry Pi might be the best.
Especially the new version with a quad core and four USB
ports.  A couple parts of the pandaboard are binary blobs and the 
underlying hardware is undocumented to the public.

The raspberry-pi does have some undocumented bits.
These are well supported by insiders with full NDA documents.

Someone should say something about price.   
The R-Pi is inexpensive enough to have two.
One to develop on and the other to test on.

For both you do want a powered USB hub for 
keyboard and mouse.  You do want a couple
spare uSD memory cards and a USB card reader
or way to read/write/repair the contents of the memory 
card.
