When will we be able to buy new hardware? I want to buy block devices and removable media drives. Also, I would like to be able to own more hosts in-game.

All current in-game hosts will eventually be migrated to block devices. I am working out the details on how to make this as smooth as possible for the beta players.
The hardware store will be developed soon enough, the code to support multi hosts and storage is already there. :) all that realistically needs to be done is creating the host or block device then adding it to the array of hosts/storage you have access to.
The first available block device for beta testing will be one for a simple hello world program to test and demonstrate the new code to players. Then the next available block device will be an OS installation disc, which will be read-only and available for any players to attach and use.
