Hardware, Embedded Systems We have found the device of your dreams. Make no mistake: this is what OSNews readers have always wanted. You are going to buy this device, in droves. Trust me, as far as geekness goes, this is pretty much the best it'll ever get. Fully open source (from hardware to software), easily servicable, runs Linux, has an ARM processor, accelerometer, powerful 3D capabilities, 10-15 hours of battery life, touchscreen, and internal USB ports. And you know what? I didn't even mention the best part: the keyboard of the Touch Book netbook is detachable, leaving you with a 8.9" tablet. And all that for USD 299!

Meh, just another netbook: too big to carry around all day, too small for a desktop replacement. For me, the perfect solution is a PDA phone with a qwerty keyboard (HTC Touch Pro in my case) for phone, mail, IM, web on the run (plus everybody goes 'wow' when you put it on a projector), and a full-sized 15" laptop for work. The only problem: price. Only the Touch Pro cost ~ 600€.

P.S. How do I change the damned comment's title? I forgot to set it originally (d'oh)...
