Step right up! For only $45, you can get an awesome BeagleBone Black Linux/ARM, Sitara AM335x 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 512MB DDR3 RAM, and 2GB of eMMC memory. Wow! Now, that's giving the RPi a run for it's money! And... it can run Java SE Embedded. That's the coolest part...
Here's a quote:
Out of the box, the BeagleBone Black includes a single DC power barrel connector, two USB 2.0 ports (one micro USB), a micro SD card slot, a micro HDMI port for video output, and a 10/100 Ethernet jack (internally USB, just like the Raspberry Pi). In addition to the somewhat-standard PC/mobile IO options, the BeagleBone Black has two 46-pin connectors on either side of the PCB that can accept cape expansion cards...Only 45 bucks. Nice. Think of all the Java Embedded apps you can run on that...
