Beaglebone Black is now at Rev.C.  CircuitCo has increased the MSRP to $55USD.  The new Beaglebone Rev.C will have 4Gb of eMMC (instead of 2Gb), and will ship with Debian instead of Angstrom!  We are now taking orders for the new Rev.C, CircuitCo expects to start shipping them in May. http://exadler.myshopify.com/products/beaglebone-black
