It's a bit like the Casiopaiea ( that'll be 600 quid sir ) but linux based.
This is the kind of device I really don't need but I'm going to have
to be physically restrained from buying.
Kind've reminds me of that Dilbert sketch where the buy in marketing
tells him that the new product should "have a 15" screen and fit in your
pocket". It's does have that penguins-in-the-mist vapour like quality to it
at the moment but I've seen the new samsung mobile phones
and they're pretty amazing so who knows ?
The ability to do kernel development at at time and in any place is another
real bonus of course...
