Adafruit is no longer shipping the BeagleBone Black Rev B, it has been replaced with the Rev C as of 5/12/14 - the Rev C now has 4G flash and also comes with Debian, it also costs slightly more. There are no exchanges or "upgrades" from Rev B to Rev C.
If you liked the BeagleBone, you will love the next gen BeagleBone Black! With a blistering 1GHz processor, 512MB onboard DDR3 RAM, built in 2GB storage with pre-installed Linux operating system (no microSD card required!), and best of all, the addition of a MicroHDMI connector for audio/video output. This is a ultra-powered embedded computer that can fit in a mint tin. Note: Orders placed after March 5, 2014, 11:35am ET theyre shipped Rev B. Any orders placed before 3/5/2014 theyre shipped Rev A6A.
Comes with a mini B cable for powering it up ASAP. No microSD card is included as the BBB now has onboard flash storage.
We'll be filling in with more information on supported accessories as they test them for compatibility. For now they suggest picking up a 5V 2A power supply and a micro-HDMI cable. If you want to use it 'head-less', a USB console cable is suggested as the 'Black does not have an onboard USB-to-Serial converter like the original BeagleBone
If you need a nice display to go along with your 'Bone, Check out Adafruit's fine selection of HDMI displays, they've tested all of them with the Beagle Bone Black
