Good luck trying to get a MPU-9150 anytime soon. It was about a year between the press release of the MPU-6000 and the actual availability in small quantities. Even now, it can be difficult to find. 9 axis in one package is tempting to wait for though...

And what's more, I just got an e-mail announcing the new (and potentially interesting) MPU-3300... for which there's exactly no information on the Invensense website.
"MPU-3300 breakthroughs include more than 100% lower noise, 10X smaller size, and a 3X price advantage vs. other industrial gyroscopes" - wait, more than 100% lower noise? That definitely means negative noise, while the other two claims parse ambiguously. Or, wait: 100% lower noise would be zero noise, and maybe "more than 100% lower noise" merely means that the noise is more than zero?
