CompuLab/Trim Slice plans to ship a desktop PC that fits in your hand with Ubuntu GNU/Linux.
It comes in two models, one with a 2.5 inch hard drive and one thinner model with SSD. This could be the first pure ARM desktop machine, just what I predicted and that some readers don’t believe will happen. This gadget should have immediate attractiveness for software developers including kernel developers and it will sooner or later have lots of apps from both Ubuntu (or other distros) and Android.
The thing is crammed with connectors: 4 USB, 1 HDMI, 1 DVI, microSD, audio in/out, etc. It’s all there.
Despite my being out of work, 2011 is shaping up to be a great year. This could be the ARMed gadget for me. It’s not a phone nor a tablet… It even has a wireless connector.
