I had the good fortune of receiving a NVidia Tegra 2 board at DebConf.
I have promised to make this into a porter box once I figure out how
to get things up and running. I'm still on vacation, such as it is, and
won't be home until the end of August so perhaps the other options
are better for you, but I hope to announce the availability of this board
sometime in the fall.
