I guess that many people already heard about the long-awaited chumby,
one of these hack-me devices.
# 266 MHz ARM controller (the MX21 by Freescale)
# 32 MB SDRAM running at 133 MHz bus speed
# 64 MB NAND FLASH ROM
# 320x240 3.5" TFT LCD
And it runs linux (2.4-based :-\)
As we can see, the neo and the chumby have a lot in common, be it
ideas, hardware specs or even leaders ;)
Yes, it uses flash7 for widgets. Which has'nt even been considered in
the openmoko case... But what if the two projects shared the widget
The two products could share:
* embedded experience
* the content ecosystem
* the display platform (flash) and tools
I'm not saying "i want this". But: "why not"?
