I'm going to side with Chris and support releasing numbers when we have
accurate info rather than speculative information like was released for
XO-1. I _still_ (last week actually) deal with deployments that think
the XO uses 2 watts because of an estimated number that was used in
speech on the XO-1 prior to when we had solid info. They are quite
surprised when they find the XO-1 has a peak draw of 17W.
The A2 boards only booted an image with working wlan at the end of the
week. We need a bit more time to make sure everything is in place for
such a measurement to be accurate.
We will get some numbers soon.
