The arndale is a good bet if you can get one. I don't think any of the
devs have an octo yet so unless you are excited to do the platform
bringup (which is not all that hard, but can be a bit lowlevel) you
might want to steer clear of that one for now.

I've got things working on a cubieboard2 and there was a cubietruck on
my desk when I got in this morning, so either of those platforms might
be a good bet, and are a bit easier to get hold of than an arndale (plus
considerably cheaper).

There are lists of hardware at
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_with_Virtualization_Extensions and some
per platform notes.
