we've just seen that iMX6 series will be available on common distributors (arrow, avnet, mouser, etc.) Does someone know if the prices shown now are for beta parts or for final parts? I mean: prices seem very attractive in comparison to, for example, iMX53.
It is better to contact the local distributors for the quotation. http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/overview.jsp?code=DISTRIBUTORS
The accurate price depends on the volume of your project and the time you want. The price on freescale.com is just for customers reference only.
I'm not talking about the prices on freescale's webpage but the prices on avnet, arrow and so on.
For example iMX537 is around 30$ (min. 750 parts) while some iMX6 are around 20$ (min. 60 parts). What's make me wonder. I guess the key is on there are many variants and some of them will not include all the hardware.
We'll ask directly to freescale's people.
