Not in this universe, but I think there's a parallel one where some lucky individuals are playing with beta versions. Unfortunately so far there's been no wormhole to allow the transfer of information between the two.

I'm not sure they are lucky individuals. I guess there is a "silence pact" and a lot of tests to be done.
Everybody who has been active on this forum knows how silent the core team can be. So plenty of pressure for the lucky few.
Off-course they have a beta board (they will probably own once the due is released); but how many bugs will they face given our 1.0 experience? How much time will they have invested?
I sure do not envy them :)

Good point, it would be work really and I have my own projects to tinker with so I'm happy NOT doing it, and if lack if info is the price I pay so be it.

Weeks of work for a board, I'll spend $70 or whatever when the time comes (maybe). Meanwhile I'm about to come up to speed with ARMs using LPC Xpresso boards. Not that there's much similarity because the IO is totally different but I've started writing HAL functions that should port to Arduino if I get the inclination one day.

They said it will be 90MHz?  I just need it for the extra speed and such.  Driving displays and such. 
I certainly don't understand the software and all that jazz to be able to develop and test it.
Accelerate to 88 miles per hour.

Massimo mentions that Due will operate at 3.3V (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QS2y-nc3uPI&feature=g-u-u). I wonder if data pins will get converted and if it is a headache to do?
Any news on when maybe?
