if you've been looking forward to intel's edison development platform since it was announced, your time has come. at the idf 2014 keynote a few days ago, edison was released. intel has brought us iot.
it's a slick little package. you can't read about it anywhere without hearing about how small it is - it's the size of a postage stamp, you see. it's small!

if it's the specs you're looking for, intel can help . edison includes:
...a 22-nm intel® atom™ soc, formerly silvermont that includes a dual core, dual threaded cpu at 500 mhz and a 32-bit intel® quark™ processor mcu at 100 mhz... [and] 40 gpios and includes: 1 gb lpddr3, 4 gb emmc, and dual-band wifi and bluetooth® low energy...
and it supports:
...development with arduino* and c/c++, followed by node.js, python, rtos, and visual programming support in the near future.
it'll be retailing for $50. that's a pretty manageable hit to take in your iot budget - after all, it's just 1/7th the price of that shiny new apple watch .
