From the BeagleBoard.org Website

In the latest series of low cost, fan-less single board embedded computers. The BeagleBoard XM is the newest version of a new line which incorporates laptop-like performance without the inconvenience of large desktop machines.

The BeagleBoard-xM delivers extra ARM ®Cortex TM -A8 MHz now at 1 GHz and extra memory with 512MB of low-power DDR RAM, enabling hobbyists, innovators and engineers to go beyond their current imagination and be inspired by the BeagleBoard.org community.

Designed with the community inputs in mind, this open hardware design improves upon the laptop-like performance and expandability, while keeping at hand-held power levels. Direct connectivity is supported by the on-board four-port hub with 10/100 Ethernet, while maintaining a tiny 3.25” × 3.25” footprint.

The BeagleBoard-xM is not intended to be a complete development environment, but rather a community-supported platform that can be used as the basis for building more complete development systems and as a target for community software baselines.

Note: This version of the BeagleBoard xM is not modified to work with the BeagleTouch. The modified version we have only comes in the Android Ultimate Pro Kit or Pro Gadget Pack. These are the only versions of the BeagleBoard xM that will work with the BeagleTouch

If you have any other questions concerning the BeagleBoard xMs compatibility. Please contact shop@liquidware.com for more information.
