Re: Beaglebone coolness...

<r>I wonder if the 89$ pricetag was to be more reasonable compared to the Pi? I would have expected a little north of 100$, but 89 seems friendly. <URL url="http://hexus.net/tech/news/industry/32408-5-arm-cortex-a8-89-beaglebone/"><LINK_TEXT text="http://hexus.net/tech/news/industry/324 ... eaglebon...

Re: Wishes for 2nd gen Raspberry Pi

<t>Quote from hajj_3 on August 30, 2011, 22:48<br/> 1ghz/512mb ram would be very nice indeed. 16GB nand flash is really cheap now ($2.68) i think, this would be loads of storage and would have incredibly fast access and sustained transfer speeds. <br/> <br/> Your looking at module pricing, not chip ...

Re: Standardized Expansion Header

<t>For a future developer revision, what I'd like to see is a standardized expansion header with as many pins as possible and focusing on the ones used most in the wild.<br/> <br/> As I understand it, the current plan is to bring them all out to a strip, but then we will need to add the pins/connect...

Re: Are/will BCM2835s be available for hobbyists?

<t>Well, bummer...though it\'s always possible Sparkfun or some other group might do something.<br/> <br/> In the meantime, the Pi is still the best, fastest way I can see to start hacking around with a decent ARM system. The only downside is that we\'re limited to whatever pins they manage to route...

Re: Are/will BCM2835s be available for hobbyists?

<r>I look at the Pi as a great device to play with and try out a lot of neat stuff.<br/> <br/> On the other hand, if it turns out I work out a project[such as my open source mypal], it would be great if after prototyping on the Pi, it was possible to order the processor in micro small batches[10-100...
