It's shipping to selected few developers starting this month. This is Texas Instrument's Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A9 OMAP4 development board, the successor of the ARM Cortex-A8 OMAP3 based BeagleBoard.org project, they are to launch the PandaBoard.org community now, for powerful embedded open source Linux development. Development of the kind of software that we could be seeing on upcoming ARM Powered laptops, tablets, set-top-boxes, desktop replacements and not only on smart phones!
This type of development board could provide one the worlds fastest and smoothest Ubuntu and Chromium on ARM development platforms yet with high resolution 1080p output and a whole bunch of exciting stuff.
If you are a hard core ARM developer, you can apply on PandaBoard.org to get an early access to this development board.
