I know this literally doubles the size of the board, but what about having an ethernet port?
I know you can buy them separately, but they also run up to ~50$ a piece.
Or maybe, since you guys are in contact with a manufacturer maybe poll your current interested users and see if they'd buy a usb+ethernet hub from you? The usb hub is a definite essential if anyone wants to buy one of these, but whats the point of having an awesome computer without networking capabilities?
I've just done some research, and this little gadget here is something that you guys might be interested in manufacturing? as an 'add on' sale? maybe?
That retails for about 50$ regularly.
you don't need one of those usb hub things the Raspberry Pi already has one ethernet and two usb ports, i think that's enough to work with
and if you will need to plug a usb flash drive you could always use the usb hub
