OpenSolaris at CES

Over this past weekend I visited the CES show in Las Vegas for the first time.  It was pretty cool for gadget freaks, though I didn't get to see anywhere near everything.  But one booth I did stop into was Toshiba's, and found a nice surprise:



Pretty cool to see your work on display at "the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow", a claim none of my buddies could make!

Update: See the press releases from Sun and Toshiba for more information on availability.

Wow, That's a good new. I hope that we can buy someone here in Latinamerica.

If I see correctly, Super key has MS Windows logo, not OpenSolaris circles. Is this a prototype?

I believe the initial availability is US-only. I'm not aware of any plan to use the OpenSolaris logo on the keyboard.

The initial availability is US-only. I've added links to the press releases. If the program expands, I'll be sure to update.

Awesome! Where do I pre-order to buy one?

I'm not aware that pre-orders are being accepted. As soon as I have a pointer to where you can place orders, I'll be sure to post it.

Dave are there any indications as to which models will be offered?

Posted by Ché Kristo on February 09, 2009 at 05:06 PM EST #

I believe it's the R600 and R10.
