The original BeagleBoard pretty much single-handedly started the trend of open-spec Linux SBCs supported by hacking communities. It helped inspire the Raspberry Pi and dozens of other hacker boards.

The X15 is in beta and will ship from and its hardware partners in late February, says ELinux.
No price has been announced yet.
