Another small system that could be fun to work with...

xpPhone is now taking preorders (possibly limited to Asia) on an AMD Super Mobile CPU based system (not sure what that is but likely in the Geode family) that could be fun to play with and get OpenSolaris running on it. A little short of RAM (only 512MB) but it will be available with SSD or HDD storate. This is a mobile phone system that comes with Windows XP.


Looking at the specs, etc. it looks a little like a Viliv S5 with physical keyboard. The keyboard slides out and the top is quite clean. With WiFi, FSM/GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA CDMA/CMDA2000, GPS, camera, VGA out, and Bluetooth, it outdoes the Viliv on options.


Anyone want to take this on :-)


An article about it is available at: http://www.crunchgear.com/2009/09/17/the-xpphone-runs-windows-xp-and-will-probably-be-produced/ and the manufacturers site is http://www.xpphone.com/en/

Comments:

Going back to the manufacturer's site, it looks like pre-order is worldwide and that there is a 1GB RAM option.
