Doesn't look like this board is going to be available in the near future outside of Japan.  But thanks anyway.  I used the schematic shown elsewhere to generate a KiCAD board layout, modified it a bit and am etching a board even as I speak

The availability discussion is on going at this URL. http://mbed.org/users/shintamainjp/notebook/starboard_orange_examples_en/

Please find the information how the people (outside Japan) trying to get the board.

Seems the shopping site for oversea shipment is available soon and a forwarding service available for the time being.

By the way, which part you want to modify if you are going to make a variant? Any feedback is welcome to make further better board in future.
