LCDuino pricing

We're getting quite close to a finalized design for the LCDuino system. I think the main LCDuino module is all set, and I have another idea for the button board, with a 5 way tactile joystick switch instead of the 5 buttons. The extra cost of the tactile switch is more than made up in reduced PCB area.

That design will wind up with a retail cost of $10. The shield adapter, unfortunately, is going to be expensive for what it is, given the size of the board. Those will retail for $20. The LCDuino module itself is going to be $30. So a whole kit will be $60. In large volumes, those prices could potentially come down, but that's hard to bootstrap when you're basically blogging to yourself. :)
