Cheapest Arduino Ever

Ok, this thing even has Arduino Clone stamped right on it and it’s $15. Yep, FIFTEEN BUCKS! True, it doesn’t have a usb connection on it but if you’ve got the tx/rx doohicky then you don’t need that anyway, right? – Link

one of these looks really fun to play with. will you bring it to the next lab day?
If you do an order for NYC Resistor, you can get a discount for bulk – it’s only $100 for 10.
The fact that the programing cable costs another 15 bucks kinda negates the low price of the chip.
By modding a Nokia CA-50 cell phone cable you can get a 5V TTL level USB-to-serial cable for less than $5. All you need to do is solder on a 6-pin connector that fits on the arduino.
Besides, some projects need more than one arduino, but only needs one USB cable to program them all.
Do you know the pin out from the Nokia cable to the Arduino clone?
