To BBB or To TRE

Looks like Arduino & TI have announced the joint product - Arduino TRE:
http://newscenter.ti.com/2013-10-03-Texas-Instruments-Sitara-AM335x-ARM-Cortex-A8-processor-fuels-most-powerful-Arduino-to-date
which seems to be based on the same TI Sitara™ AM335x that the BBB is based on. Available in Spring 2014 !

While the “shields” for the BBB look to be unusable on the TRE, looks like a lot of the lessons learned on the BBB can be directly used on the TRE. Audio jacks are nice to have… But, if only there was at least 1GB RAM on the TRE…

Good feedback. It still isn't set in stone. Good time to make a case
for various things.
