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.

how about showing some real products that I can purchase online and have shipped to NZ - then I might remotely care about the product.


That has been done time and time again. You could have ordered a Touch Book the first time you complained about it, and got presented with the link. Then you would have had it already, and the rest of us would not have to read the same useless drivel in every discussion about alternative CPU platforms.

You are either inept or not trying to get one of those devices, as it seem quite manageable to get one. I have even seen Longsoon devices for sale locally here in Norway, so it should not be impossible to get some to NZ either. Personally I'm holding out for the next generation, with some more power than the Touch Book or Longsoons.

Provide me the link where you provided specifically to me in a replied message the exact link.

There are no resellers in New Zealand - I tried to get in contact with a distributor/reseller via Alibaba but I have received no reply.

Funny how high and mighty you are with the throwing around of abuse that you do.

Why do you need a reseller in New Zealand? They will ship you one directly if you order from their website. There is a backlog of orders right now so you might have to wait a bit, like everyone else.

From their faq ( http://www.alwaysinnovating.com/wiki/index.php/Faqs#Do_you_ship_int... ):

What are the countries you are selling the Touch Book?

We are selling the Touch Book to the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom (Great Britain), and the United States. We may add countries to that list later on, but we don't have a timetable yet.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes. We have not yet figured out the multi-language keyboard production, but you can already order a Touch Book if your shipping address is among the list above. Orders processing are subject to the same delays as US orders, but expect one or two weeks more for delivery due to transit and customs. We only ship to the countries listed in the order form. We may add countries to that list later on, but we don't have a timetable yet.
