# Texas Instruments OMAP3530 with Micron 256MB (RAM) + 256MB (NAND) Memory
# 8.9 inches 1024x600 A+ screen
# Main storage: 8GB SD card — we decided to change from Micro SD to standard SD, so that you can easily upgrade it
# Internal USB wifi 802.11 b/g/n powered by a Ralink 3070 chipset
# Internal USB bluetooth class 2.1
# FCC, CE, UL-certified, 5V, 3.5A power adapter
# 8.9 inches pressure sensitive touch screen
# US Qwerty 24cm-large keyboard — around 95% of the size of a standard keyboard
# Cirque Touchpad
# Two Owolff high-quality internal stereo speakers
# 3D accelerometer
# Two internal batteries 6000 and 12000mAh — it can be replaced with a screw driver
# 7 USB ports: three external, four internal, three of them may be reserved for wifi, bluetooth and keyboard
# Bi-color silver/black case — see photos — with a beautiful dark-red back cover (we decided to go only for red for the first batch as it really jumps out, you won't regret it).
# Secured attachment system of tablet into keyboard
# Independent magnet system for the tablet — we don't want your Touch Book to un-magnetize all your credit cards while carrying it in your bag!

Beautiful!  I was thinking of hacking something together like this.  A tablet is ideal for me.  I was thinking of illume as the ideal interface though.  They don't have any screenshots of the desktop or the 3d finger launchers...curious to see how that looks.

I'm bookmarking that page.

The touchbook has started shipping.

Let's hope the pandora gets shipped in the next couple of months too.
