The folks at are teasing us with a sneak peek of the newest version the of the BeagleBone, their embedded Linux development board. According to the post on their site, the new board comes at a lower price, touts more processing power, and has an on-board HDMI port so that it can connect directly to TVs and monitors without extra hardware. The new board will also feature more RAM and on board flash storage in addition to the microSD slot. And if you already have a collection of BeagleBone capes (expansion boards), there’s no need to worry since the new hardware will be compatible with existing capes. According to a press release from Element-14, availability of the board is slated for late April. They’re currently allowing you to “register your interest” so that you’re among the first to know when they start taking orders.
