The best summary I've found:
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/11/01/hp_redstone_calxeda_servers/

Specifications at for the ECX-1000:
http://www.calxeda.com/products/energycore/ecx1000/techspecs

And EnergyCard:

The only hint on price that I found was from theregister.co.uk:
 The sales pitch for the Redstone systems, says Santeler, is that a
 half rack of Redstone machines and their external switches
 implementing 1,600 server nodes has 41 cables, burns 9.9 kilowatts,
 and costs $1.2m.

So it sounds like for 6 watts and $750 you get a quad core 1.4 GHz arm
10G connected node.
