Arduino Mega ADK question

Hi, I might buy a Mega ADK board, but can anyone tell me if u can also program the board like the normal Mega 2560 from a pc, I want to have the option to connect it to a phone later, for now I just want to use it like the Mega 2560.

Of course. http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardMegaADK

Just wondering because all suppliers in my area do not list this board at all, only the Mega 2560 and the other boards, while you would think that the Mega ADK board would have replaced that one.

while you would think that the Mega ADK board would have replaced that one.

You might. I wouldn't. Why would I, an iPhone owner, want to spent more on an Arduino that can't talk to my phone? The Mega ADK is more expensive and tailored for ONE specific phone, which is not all that widely used.
