Hardware, Embedded Systems Ah, the ARM chip. ARM is a hugely successful architecture, and can be found in just about every cell phone or other small device out there. ARM, however, wants more, and for a long time now we've been hearing predictions about an upcoming massive rise in ARM netbooks - so far, this hasn't materialised. Warren East, ARM's CEO, said in an interview with PC Pro that netbooks could one day make up 90% of the laptop market - preferably powered by ARM processors of course.

There is one available at:

It is somewhat rough around the edges - there was a good review Linux Journal recently. It is definitely a shipping product, albeit a 2 month wait time.


That is kind of useless; all this talk about ARM netbooks is pissing me off as much as all those promising a Loongson MIPS based netbooks and never delivering them - when are we going to see that EMTEC netbook with the Loongson? yet another pie in the sky idea that never gets off the ground? Talk and talk and talk is about the only thing these IT companies can do - how about showing some real products that I can purchase online and have shipped to NZ - then I might remotely care about the product.
