hideki, those look superb. summarising (in case anyone's missed it):
they're armv7 compatible because they're using a marvell xp processor;
they're up to dual-core 1.4ghz and the company openblocks can do them
with up to 3gb of RAM, and i gather the openblocks boxes have a mini
pci-e port as well as gigabit ethernet.
i'm including arm-netbooks because there may almost certainly be
people on that list who would be interested in a group buy. there has
been quite a bit of interest in getting hold of modular computing
devices for rack-mounted server usage.
