Ben NanoNote Aims To Bring Open Source Tenets to Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| Is there a market out there for completely 
| open source computers, where even the 
| design of the hardware components is 
| shared in community fashion? That's the 
| question that Qi Hardware's Ben NanoNote 
| laptop is trying to answer. According to 
| Linux News, you can now order the systems 
| for $99. Linux is on board, and all 
| aspects of the hardware design are open 
| and free for tinkerers to modify.

| That will get you a bare bones device that can
| simply be used as a Linux-based "handheld
| laptop" out of the box or, as the company
| hopes, be turned into anything from a PMP to
| an offline Wikipedia device. Something along
| those lines would seem to be the most
| practical, considering the device only has a
| 3-inch 320 x 240 display, along with some
| similarly basic specs including a 336 MHz
| XBurst Jz4720 CPU, 32MB of RAM, 2GB of flash
| storage, and a microSD card slot for
| expansion. Head on past the break for a look
| under the lid.

| The Qi Hardware æ NanoNote - also known as
| the Ben NanoNote, and pictured over on
| Engadget - is a Linux-based palmtop with
| QWERTY keyboard designed to be hacked into
| anything your heart desires: a media player, a
| note-taking tool, a Wikipedia reader, an RSS
| aggregator, or whatever you can imagine.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
