| While I'm thinking about all the things I'd do with it, this is what comes to 
| my mind: this thing cost around $400. There are few other devices that cost 
| that much these days:  
|     * Nokia N810
|     * Asus eeePC 701
|     * OLPC


Here's a good early look at Android:

Hands on with Android: XML Parsing

,----[ Quote ]
| Here is an XML parser that I created to showcase Android’s UI. It retrieves 
| NBA, MLB and NFL scores off of my web server. The true beauty is that Android 
| is J2SE seasoned with some Google UI components.   


All Linux. Vista says goodbye to a mobility generation.


This time for sure on mobile Linux

| The Wal-Mart Linux PC, priced at $198, is sold out. Zonbu seems to be gaining

| “You’re seeing incredibly improved device drivers. We’ve got hundreds now. 
| This is a phenomenal effort that plays to the strength of Linux, a volunteer 
| community representing millions of dollars in free development.

| but also mobile Internet devices from Acer, Motorola’s Razr, TiVo…there’s a 
| slew of new devices coming out.”  


Linux Sees 'Astronomic' Growth in Mobile Devices

Linux is about to take over the low end of PCs

,----[ Quote ]
| Opinion -- Sometimes, several unrelated changes come to a head at the same 
| time, with a result no one could have predicted. The PC market is at such a 
| tipping point right now and the result will be millions of Linux-powered PCs 
| in users' hands.

| Microsoft will fight this trend tooth and nail. It will cut prices to the 
| point where it'll be bleeding ink on some of its product lines. And Windows 
| XP is going to stick around much longer than Microsoft ever wanted it to. 
| Still, it won't be enough. By attacking from the bottom, where Microsoft can 
| no longer successfully compete, Linux will finally cut itself a large slice 
| of the desktop market pie.
