FYI, I bought my Odroid Go from Ameridroid here in the USA. It looks more expensive until you factor in shipping, which is much cheaper with Ameridroid and mine only took three business days to arrive. They also have decently priced add-ons like memory cards which would save some peoples headaches trying to use sub-standard cards, as O-Droid seems to be fussy about the type.
