[riot-devel] Board Selection for RIOT

Hi Alexander,

naturally the board of choice would be the iot-lab_M3 (the one used in 
the FIT IoT-lab testbed). But as this board is not freely available on 
the market, I suggest the Atmel samr21-xpro. It uses (almost) the same 
radio as the iot-lab nodes and is freely available at the usual 
electronics suppliers for about 30-40 euros.
