The beauty of FLOSS for entrepreneurs is that you can come to market with a product rapidly and cheaply. This Christmas, it’s a small cheap tablet that’s first out of the gate with Android/Linux 4.0 / Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s a beautiful 7 inch tablet using a low-powered (250mW) MIPS chip that can do 7 hours of browsing on a charge.
They will sell for ~$100.
Eat your heart out, M$. The world is moving on without you.
See the MIPS/Ingenic announcement. It’s available in China now and will be available elsewhere within a few months. I think I could persuade my wife to get one of these. She’s small and moves around a lot.
