AMD AMD has stopped its work on the Personal Internet Communicator project after nearly two years of planning and development. The PIC was announced in late 2004 as a USD 250 headless computer, sporting a Geode x86 processor, 128MB of RAM and a 10GB hard drive. PIC was designed for 'emerging markets' where the cost of computer hardware is seen as prohibitively high.

All that said, the big difference in the approach is that the EFIKA can be assembled into many things and that assembly and fine tuning to the local market is an opportunity the local economy can absorb. The EFIKA will have OS options and can be many different things. Example:

Thanks for the introduction and the opportunity to post that.

R&B ;)
