Trevor Johnson is asking for opinions on pricing of a RISC OS version of the Always Innovating Touch Book, which has very similar hardware to the Beagle Board, and would be largely supported by Jeffery Lee's current RISC OS 5 work on the Beagle Board.

The Touch Book is currently priced at US $399, but considering shipping, repackaging, the process of installing RISC OS and low volumes, he has suggested a price of GBP 450 (about US $730).

Peter, thanks very much for posting the link on here. Hopefully I've well overestimated the price. Regards, Trevor

Bearing in mind that AI has referred to RISC OS on its main wiki page since 2 November 2009, we may see the RO cog logo on its info page at some point. However, AIUI a Castle Technology licence will be required by AI/its distributors unless users are to download and install RISC OS themselves.
