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?
