Sucks to report: the dingens are sold out everywhere, $99 for a 8"
touchscreen with a 800Mhz freescale ARM chip, 2GB mem, usb 2.0, fm
radio, b/g wifi, stereo 1.5W speakers, and a linux 2.6 kernel.

There's a smaller 3.5" one if you want it, Amir.   Just let me know.
A friend at Noisebridge, Anthony, just put python on it as is, hooked
up relays to the GPIOS and made a door controller out of it.
For the 8" device, I think its really the resistive touchscreen really
makes it worth it.

I'll see what happens to the stock at local stores over the next week.
