Via CEO Wenchi Chen revealed a business card-sized motherboard billed as the "world's first industry-standard form-factor for PC/phone convergence," at Computex today. The "mobile-ITX" board measures 3 x 1.8 inches -- half the size of Via's "pico-ITX" form-factor -- and runs Windows XP Embedded or Linux.

This seems like the very thing the PocketPenguin developers could possibly run with and create the ultimate Zaurus Killer. Via is definitely making things easier for the do-it-yourselfers to create compact and powerful devices.
