Eat your heart out iPad — I want one of these

From TechSource, I quote

On the hardware side, it has 1 external USB, 2 internal USB, motion sensor, Ethernet connector, microphone and headphone ports, front-facing web camera (2-Megapixel), ambient light sensor, accelerometer, and more. On the software side, the device is running Linux but we don’t have further details about it. It could be Android, or could be a heavily customized Linux distro. However, it’s certain that it will rely on HTML5-based applications, it will have Flash support, and it will feature Android-compatible development platform.

Some of the specs:

  • LCD 10.1“ resolution 1024×600
  • Multi-Touch Capacitive panel (with coverglass)
  • RAM 256MB DDR
  • 4GB internal Storage NAND-Flash (1GB to 8GB)

  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • SDHC card reader
  • Battery internal (8 hours+)
  • 3G (with internal USB dongle optional)
  • Zigbee (with internal USB dongle optional) — [Have no idea what this is]
  • Camera (2 Megapixel)
  • 2 x speakers 2 W
  • 5 buttons (on/off, + / – , home , menu)
  • Foldable foot
  • VESA mounting
  • Kensington lock — [Need this here in SA 🙂 ]
  • Size : 268 x 168 x 16 mm Weight : 800 gr.

I am sure that there will be much more of these devices hitting the marker running some form of Linux or Android.
