Well, here is first video that shows our new LVDS board with LCD in action.

I used Ubuntu 11.04 for this demo. Yes, Ubuntu is very slow on BeagleBoard-xM, much faster on PandaBoard with 10 class SD card 🙂
Here are specs of LCD in short:
1. Screen size: 10″, glossy
2. Resolution: 1024×600
3. # of colors: 256K (18-bits)
4. Touchscreen: 2 points capacitive (you can see this in video when I try to press screen by ruler and by finger). Touchscreen has USB interface.
5. Power: 3.3V logic, 5V backlight. All powers are available right from our new LVDS add-on board.
6. Backlight: LED. We also supply ambient light sensor for automatic brightness control. It will be shown in second video.
Pre-order for plug-and-play bundle (new LVDS board + LCD with touchscreen + LVDS cable + ambient light sensor) will be available in 1-2 days. First shipments are scheduled for end of November. Price of bundle will be 134.99 USD (shipping is not included). We will provide 15 USD discount for all pre-orders (so, you can buy it for $119.99 till end of November). Stay tuned!
We are out of stock with assembled boards, and here is a reason for this – we designed a new PCB with many new features. It just pass our tests, and everything works well. I will record video this week, and we will add it to our shop. Also, we will offer 10″ LCD with touchscreen and LVDS cable that will work right from box with this new board. Please, be patient.
Good news everyone! We just passed all current orders to shipping company, so you should receive your orders pretty soon. We will also provide tracking numbers of parcel for our customers who selected DHL delivery after getting them from shipping company on Monday.
Thanks everyone for your orders and your patience!
