Raedius Runs On Linux
« on: January 24, 2008, 01:56:55 pm »
Hi,

I just thought you should know this, as this is not mentioned in the public specs. I'm interested in the polymer display technology for some time already but today I came across this video at youtube which must haven been filmed on the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona some days ago. In the end of the video the guy asks what OS is running on it and sales representative says that it's Linux.

Very cool and powerful mobile, just look at the specs:

OMG please let's hype it, so they stay with Linux... because the guy says in the end that there will be other OS options, too.

Beware, that website resizes your browser to fullscreen.... I'm using firefox and I'm weary of websites that "take over" my browser and resize it.

If it can work as a gprs modem (and it at least sounds like it should) this would suit me very well
