The ODROID device is now available on pre-order for Korean developers and will go for around $320 US a pop. Supply is very limited, however, as there are only 300 units available. Even so, pre-orders will run till October 8th and should ship in early November. Developers can also expect the device to come with an 8GB SDHC, batteries, USB cable and a serial console board for debugging. Not too shabby, to be honest.

According to the word on the net, a consumer version of the device will be available in December for around $260 US. We reported on the ODROID back in September, but we can now also provide a more complete specification listing, available after the jump.
