Has anyone else heard of this new portable handheld device? My friend showed it to me and it looks pretty neat.

Specifications:

Quote

* ARM® Cortex™-A8 600Mhz+ CPU running Linux
* 430-MHz TMS320C64x+™ DSP Core
* PowerVR SGX OpenGL 2.0 ES compliant 3D hardware
* 800x480 4.3" 16.7 million colours touchscreen LCD
* Wifi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth & High Speed USB 2.0 Host
* Dual SDHC card slots & SVideo TV output
* Dual Analogue and Digital gaming controls
* 43 button QWERTY and numeric keypad
* Around 10+ Hours battery life


The price is not too bad either, unfortunately though the preorders have just stopped - or are just about to. It looks okay in my opinion, I just wonder whether it performs as good as they say it does. I may think about buying one when they are released.

Looks pretty cool, but I am not quite sure how many people out there will be willing to buy a smaller version of their laptop (because that is really what it looks like), but still the idea it pretty cool, and the device looks pretty sleek, maybe it will become huge...

They'll need to make some more noise about it, otherwise it looks like it could disappear without many people knowing it actually existed at all.
