The Olimex OLinuXino products look rather promising in this area:

There's also the Cubieboard:

they are interesting ideas, but they need to actually ship.

One of the massive advantages that the Pi has right now is that it's being produced in high volume.

When you're building 10K units/day you can get significantly better pricing than when you are trying to build 200 units total.

If these products actually get manufactured (in anything other than a one-off batch of prototypes), then we can start considering them as options

It would be good to get competition to the Pi (competition is good to have, it keeps all the projects from stagnating), but right now there's not much anywhere close to the price point.

The OLinuXino has shipped, I bought and received one months ago (the MAXI iMX233-based one at least).
