FT232RL Breakout Board from SparkFun

ladyada, could you inform us on if and when you might be getting some of these? I am interested in getting one, and have yet to find a store that i trust listing them.

Check the official Arduino distributors page for stores that may be carrying them.

About half of the US/Americas-based distributors have the Mega in stock. Seeed Studio (based in China) is also carrying them, afaik.

UK distributors have them as well. I managed to pick mine up last week. I'm now looking forward to finding a use for the additional I/O and extra shield PCB area :)

They seem to be priced "nicely"; I doubt that they'll cut into regular arduino sales...

well its good to hear you will be getting some soon. Luckily money isn't too much of an issue lately. I have been saving alot, so the hefty price shouldn't be an issue here.
