Digital Gear: Android Tablets Charge Ahead

,----[ Quote ]
| Sony has a rich history in developing 
| entertainment devices, and the company's 
| upcoming Xperia X10 smartphone could become 
| one of the better mobile devices for 
| multimedia and entertainment. The device has 
| the hardware and software necessary to take 
| high-resolution pictures, access Web sites and 
| stream video from the Internet.
| It includes an 8.1-megapixel camera, and 
| images will be displayed on its 4-inch OLED 
| (organic light-emitting diode) touch screen. 
| The device is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 
| processor running at 1GHz, which is also used 
| in netbook-like devices running full-fledged 
| Linux operating systems. The Xperia weighs 
| just 135 grams.



JooJoo (supposed-to-be-CrunchPad) Linux-based Tablet PC Unleashed

,----[ Quote ]
| So why did they call it JooJoo instead of
| CrunchPad? Recent disagreements between
| Arrington and the Fusion Garage team ended
| the CrunchPad project. Chandra
| Rathakrishnan, Fusion Garage CEO, later
| announced that the CrunchPad would be
| released by the company as the JooJoo to
| avoid lawsuits.
| [...]
| The JooJoo is basically just a web-browsing
| machine. It runs on a custom-made Linux
| operating system with a sole purpose of
| running a browser that's based on Webkit.
| The home screen is your window to different
| web sites/applications. The "internet is
| the application" so you can't save files
| like images and documents to your physical
| storage device.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
