Litlâs Webbook lets laptop take easel way

| For recording your own video, the Litl has 
| a Webcam in the usual spot above the 
| screen, but I couldnât find a use for it. 
| Gmailâs video chat isnât configured for 
| Linux yet, and since thereâs no hard drive, 
| you canât download programs like Skype.

| There is another alternative to the Windows 
| OS and that is Linux. It is simpler to use 
| and it offers more freedom to its users. 
| This system also has an added advantage as 
| its installation is free and it can also 
| operate from any computer. Besides Android 
| there is another operating system that 
| ensures good performance and that is Moblin 
| and it is currently the platform that is 
| widely being used for Intelâs Linux. 


Aurora is Here

| Well the name is anyway! Eeebuntu is now 
| Aurora: perfect for all your PCâs, Laptopâs 
| and Netbooks.  Aurora is designed for 
| users, by users with users. We are working 
| hard gearing up for a release in the coming 
| months with a wealth of features right from 
| the off!



Hands On With the Litl [GNU/Linux] Webbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Powering the litl is a 1.8-GHz Atom Z540
| processor, with 1GB of 533-Mhz DDR2 RAM. The
| bright, two-toned chassis is sturdy, belying
| its dainty appearance. Its 12.1-inch screen is
| driven by Intel integrated graphics, and
| offers a 1280 x 800 resolution. It also weighs
| just over 3 pounds, making it very portable.


Will the litl make it big?

,----[ Quote ]
| What it is: With recent news about the
| Internet-connected CrunchPad (now called
| JooJoo), I thought it was interesting that the
| litl has already been shipping. Basically the
| same concept (except this is a notebook rather
| than a tablet with a touchscreen), the litl is
| meant to be an Internet computer (or
| "Webbook"), accessing its applications across
| the Internet. There's no hard drive for
| installing applications (there is some small
| memory for content caching), no optical drive
| and it runs on a Linux operating system instead
| of Windows or Macintosh.

| Litl hasn't said what OS the Webbook uses,
| but it certainly has a Moblin look about it,
| with its presentation of website bookmarks,
| contacts, media files, social networking
| accounts and so on as on-screen widgets. It
| has true widgets too.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
