    Maybe that is what $99 means, 109€ plus 3 to 4 months wait

    That is how marketing works a guess, you launch something early spring so that people have what to talk about during summer

      What a dire shame that there's no M.2 disk and that it relies on SD cards that absolutely *suck*.

        I looked hard at the pictures, but I fail to see any M.2 form factor.
        Now M.2 wifi can mean anything, as the M.2 can sport PCIe, SATA and USB.
        I also don't know what you mean with M.2 disk... do you mean SATA or PCIe?
        The sd card is a big meeh. Either armfriendly or odroid emmc modules please... sd cards are for PI's that are not meant to run 24/7 for years and really using the storage.

          https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/autonom...s/jetson-nano/
          The nano SOM contains 16GB eMMC 5.1 flash
          As far as I can see, the SDK is the SOM with heatsink on an interface PCB that can hold the SOM (with eMMC) and a micro sd card.
          The SOM fails to mention M.2 wifi, but it has loads of pci lanes. The interface PCB mentions an M.2 connector with key E, which means PCIe ×2, USB 2.0, I2C, SDIO, UART and PCM.
          I can only ask Michael to confirm or deny the specs as shown on the nvidia site.

          https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/faq
          says that developer kits are reference carrier boards with the SOM

          And it also has a pricing that says that the developer kit is $20 cheaper than the SOM. So: the reference carrier board+SOM is $20 cheaper than just the SOM. I think Nvidia must fix their faqs and product website, because this is getting pretty unclear, unless they really mean that more hardware is cheaper than less hardware.

            $129 vs $99 is $30 diff... mine calculator said

            Or in euros that would 109€ or 139€ i guess

              Well yeah that what VAT usually does for the prices, I'm not sure that includes VAT to this device though. But usually nvidia shop adds VAT for graphics cards. Seems to be now early April for shipping date.

                https://developer.download.nvidia.co...User_Guide.pdf

                So the nvidia faq did not lie: it is a reference carrier board, with a jetson nano SOM. (The M.2 is under the SOM, as it is a key E, I wonder if you can use a PCIe extender...)
                However the product page says that the jetson nano SOM contains a 16GB eMMC.
                You know what, I will forget about this product until the product pages are clear.

                  By M.2 disk I mean either PCIE or SATA. I'd prefer the former but would have been fine with the latter. I believe the connector is there, but it only leaves room for the wifi module so I don't think any standard m.2 formfactor disk would work there, unless someone builds some kind of connector (if it works at all, that is). I run a Jetson TX2 and I like it a lot. This little board is extremely exciting - I'd love to have built stuff around it - but as you say, these SD cards break as soon as you do anything that hits them regularly 24/7. They're awful.

                  Now I guess I could just plug something in via USB3 though but that seems a bit hackish. Bit of a missed opportunity here I would think. Everything else about the product looks great.

                    VAT = value added tax



                    Maybe it should be called VRT

                      Yeah. I'd be happy with their crappiest x86 APU slapped together with whatever is laying around since I know they're not really in this market. Also seems like a decent way for them to burn off their remaining FM2 APU stock.

                      Even though Nvidia makes nice products, it just feels like I'm doing a disservice to Linux by buying their products. I'm kind of surprised that as Linux supportive as AMD is that they're not in the Linux SBC market in some form. Since I don't think they can compete in the low powered ARM market, create the slightly higher powered x86 SBC market targeting multi-monitor workstations that mainly do office documents and web browsing as well as all sorts of multimedia applications.
