The tiny iKIT notebook with the 2.8-inch screen

I saw this being announced on German TV last night and I knew right away that this was a candidate for a story on GAS!

A tiny notebook is being developed and released by a British company called the iKIT – and “tiny” really is the operative word here.   It has a 2.8 inch screen and as the following picture shows, it sits very snugly on a regular computer keyboard :

It isn’t able to run Microsoft Word but as this Yahoo article says, it is capable of doing a LOT of other things.  With 64MB of RAM, it will run Linux and will come pre-loaded with lots of useful apps such as IM programs, a media player, and the Opera Mini web browser to get you onto the internet.   It also has a webcam, a mini-USB port, offers WI-FI and Bluetooth connectivity, and is priced at 99 British pounds (US$161.)

If I ever found myself in need of a tiny mobile computer, this is something I might consider buying someday.   What do you think of it?

  1. Hmmm… I wonder how many ebooks you could fit on that thing? It looks like it would be great for schools that are looking to reduce the weight of backpacks kids are carrying around. Seriously, have you seen what kids shoulder?! Were going to be a nation of hunchbacks pretty soon. :/

    Later…
