making a VERY simple electronic device for my website

Posted 10 October 2011 - 11:20 PM

i made a social networking site that tends to be very popular among middle schoolers and early high schoolers who tend not to have smart phones for their facebooks and what not. i was thinking about makeing some simple cheap microcontroller connected to a sd card connected to a lcd screen and a network addaptor. is this possible with some minimal sodering?

what i would be looking for it to do is read the text on a page and have a text box that you could input into thats it no major programming

Im afraid nit, from what I know that's quite complex.
Is this really a Computer Support & Operating Systems question.
Do we even have a forum for that? We need one.

Id develop an android app and an iPhone app for it, personally.

I don't think that is possible to do at an easy level. Most handheld devices use BGA's and you can't solder those by hand :) Plus, You would have to build a device from the ground up. Even if you use an Arduino based system it would still take a lot of time and money to get it to work.

Have you looked into the ZipLt's?

You can even mod them and have them run Linux :)

Other than that I would go with JimmyBo's idea and make an android app.
