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.

I have always liked ARM, and now there seem like there are going to be some compelling hardware available. From what the different manufacturers show there are some nice devices coming, and hopefully they get to production this time around.

For it time it was quite a nice and competitive device(better looking too), they were called sub-notebook not netbooks then. Unfortunately the Acorn Stork design stranded.

It stranded along with another nice project I also thought made sense at the time, the NewsPAD. I still think it makes sense, as does some others it seem.
