Hi everybody,

while interesting, I would suggest to have a look at this device:

It was developed as an successor of the openpandora and will be open
(source and hardware) from the point the first productioin run is on the
It's currently in the final phase of development (read the last Pyra
news Post first to get the latest status).

Since it is ment to be a tiny laptop with gaming controls, you can use
the game controls (nubs) as an excelent pointing device. (you can use
one as a pointing device and the other to emulate mouse clicks.

And it has an internal Display with a 720p resolution, which makes a lot
more sense to me then HD resolution on sich a tiny device).

And it was developed with the support and ideas of the community, which
is finaly using it.

just my 2 cents
