Anyone seen these developer/prototype kits or know more??

>From Marvell (US$99)

"The plug computer will be based on Marvell's SheevaPlug platform, which
has an embedded 1.2-GHz CPU. It would also come with 512 MB of flash
memory and and 512 MB of DRAM. The device would connect to the home
network by ethernet and have a USB 2.0 port."


I couldn't see how to order one :-(

>From E-Ink (Active Matrix Electronic Paper Display as in Kindle):

"For $3K, You Can Build Your Own Kindle Killer"

"The kit is based around the open source Gumstix single-board computer,
which combines a 400-MHz Marvell processor with a Bluetooth transceiver,
USB, a serial port and a card reader."


Yep, list price is $3000 for a kit!!!
