This is the least expensive one that I know about (US $34.95):

You speak to it via a serial link; I have had no problems talking to it using the software serial library.

Good luck!

These are still expensive in comparison to this ElectricIMP module >> http://electricimp.com/ a complete single module consisting of Cortex-M3 and WiFi at about 25 USD, How they are able to get this price?

That's pretty interesting. I hadn't seen that before, thanks.

The cheapest I can find for it is $29.95 at Amazon, have you seen it for less? I may have to order one to check it out.

I'm not sure why there aren't cheaper WiFi solutions. Economies of scale?

Thanks again for the Electric Imp pointer.
