This is not really a new product (as far as being mentioned here on the forums), but I think this is an effort by our old friend (and member here) Guylhem. It is called the Letux 400. It is similar to the Razorbook, Elonex One T, HiVision Mininote, and several other iterations of the same (or similar) basic design. Wasn't Letux Guylhem's old project from before his wreck?

Ahah! I was wondering what the device was that I saw in Maplins (a kind of Radio Shack for those in USA):

Hi all,
there are now two projects on www.linuxtogo.org and a wiki page with a lot of background information (hardware, software analysis, uboot, kernels, hints, tricks and tips etc.).

Links:

http://projects.linuxtogo.org/projects/minibook-kernel/ -- kernel develoment (2.6.x)
http://projects.linuxtogo.org/projects/mipsbook/ -- user space development (Debian chroot etc.)

http://projects.kwaak.net/twiki/bin/view/E.../HardwareLayout
http://projects.kwaak.net/twiki/bin/view/E...ompilingAKernel

While our consumers are really surprised to use it as a lightweight and very portable photo viewer, e-mail reader, etc., we still see that developers are a little reluctant to look depper into that device. It is fully hackable and a lot of fun to play with! Any reasons?
