The $69 i.MX6 single-core, $89 i.MX6 dual-core wandboard Freescale i.MX6 single and dual-core development board is now being shown in some real world pictures, it should start shipping from the middle of November. Linux/angstrom on a 3.x kernel reportedly is running nicely. They are currently working on smoothening Android ICS support and also looking at JB to see what they can have for people to play with in early December.
http://wandboard.org is launching this new $69 (single-core) and $89 (dual-core, with wifi/bluetooth) Freescale i.MX6 Solo/Dual based ARM Cortex-A9 development board. They say they start shipping around the middle of November. No word yet if there's going to be a quad-core i.MX6 Quad version also.

HardKernel presents their new ODROID-X, it's a quite affordable open mobile development platform based on Exynos4412 ARM Cortex-A9 Quad Core (same as in the Samsung Galaxy S3) which shows PC-like performance.
* Low-cost mobile software development platform
* Quad core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore
* 6 x High speed USB2.0 Host port
* 10/100Mbps Ethernet with RJ-45 LAN Jack
* Audio codec with headphone jack and microphone jack
* Android 4.0.4 ICS
HardKernel pretty much is the official/unofficial Samsung Exynos/Hummingbird development kit maker out of South Korea. You can watch my previous videos when they launched the ODROID-A Exynos4210 Tablet Development Kit in March 2011, the ODROID-T in June 2011 and when they launched the original ODROID gaming development device in March 2010.
I guess you can consider this a bit like the official Exynos4412 development board, the Exynos4412 is one of the most powerful ARM platforms on the market today. If there's a box, you may consider this an awesome ARM Powered desktop and set-top-box also. Can you run Jelly Bean, Ubuntu, Chromium OS and Windows RT on it? And it's a games console, see how Super Mario Kart 64 is emulated smoothly on it:
And if you'd like it in a tablet form factor, HardKernel provides the new $850 ODROID-Q with a built-in 3G modem.

VIA shows it's 49 USD computer, it is powered by a Wondermedia WM8750 (ARM11 SoC) at 800MHz. It is distributed with Android and supports 720p playback, has 4 USB 2.0 port, one 100Mbps Ethernet port, one VGA out and one HDMI out port, and standard analog input/output audio. It is build in a Neo-ITX form factor that allows to be used on any case that support Micro-ATX, it is expected to be released at the end of June 2012.

Bernhard Rosenkränzer who is the Android Toolchain expert at Linaro shows how Linaro's version of Android 4.0.4 runs about twice as fast as stock Android 4.0.4 on the TI OMAP4430 Powered Pandaboard.
Raspberry Pi expects to have volume devices on the market by the end of the month. That means $25 and $35 (with ethernet) Broadcom ARM11 ARM Powered Desktops are thus just about to be broadly available.
Texas Instruments released this video showing that Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 now already boots fine on the OMAP4430 based $179 Pandaboard which you can buy at http://pandaboard.org. I expect that we might see Desktop-optimized user interfaces and a full Chrome web browser soon, maybe with Android 4.1 or 4.2. As I also think it's important for every ICS smartphone to turn into a "desktop mode" when using the HDMI output and when a keyboard and mouse are detected.
Texas Instruments is launching a $5 ARM Cortex-A8, it's re-optimized for specific tasks, it can go in tablets, but it can also be used in industrial and medical applications, and certain custom uses, where this can be thought of a high-end microprocessor yet very low cost, it starts at $5 for ordering 100 thousand units. It's an ARM Cortex-A8 performance for industrial applications at the cost and power usage of ARM9 Microprocessor. TI's Beagleboard.org community is launching the new $89 BeagleBone to develop on this platform.
