My understanding is that the Lilypad has the greatest support but my preference is to go with the Flora given my amazing experience with the adafruit community. Also, the level of technological excellence is amazing across the spectrum of products sold by adafruit. Long way around to say that I haven't dabbled in wearable electronics yet so I'd like to build my base of knowledge with a platform that I can stick with. 1) Are there some key Lilypad limitations that are overcome with the Flora? 2) Are there other considerations that I haven't expressed that make it a wise decision to wait until the end of March for the Flora? Thanks
thanks for the kind words!
we have a detailed outline of what the FLORA is here:http://www.adafruit.com/products/659
we're currently in beta and we've not give an ETA so you should choose what's shipping now if you have a deadline.
