Well they are flooded with orders at the moment and apparently production has been hit badly by the disaster in Japan.

Snowball will be an interesting alternative.  ;)

i have found that they can be powered from USB but i still cannot find if it can be powered from PoE, i dont think it can but just that feature would sell me on it

I am powering my (non-PoE) cameras using PoE, made possible with a "poe injector extractor kit" (have a look on eBay).

Cheers,
Matt.

244 EUR is the price for the Product Development Kit version; the SDK version, a simple dev board like the Panda, will be cheaper:

Prices announced in February:
PDK version: 300 $
SDK version: 200 $

the snowball has 4-8 gigs of onboard memory in addition to the sd card it looks like
and the snowball looks like it has to possibility to be POE if use with an extractor, where the pandaboard cannot because of current requirements
i do like the snowball, but i feel like i would be wasting the accelerometer that comes on it
