iKit on Linux

Actually it looks more like a Nintendo Gameboy SP. This is what happens when you challenge the netbook line and come up with something much smaller – you end up with well, a smartphone that can’t make calls. I actually don’t know what to call it. I also don’t know if this will reall replace anything that you already have. It’s not a cellphone because you can’t make calls, but you can surf via WiFi and 3G through your cellphone. It’s not something you can really show to present to clients. So what is it, really? What’s the value proposition of this $175.00 device? It sure is cool to have, but it lurks too much into the realm of the mobile phone to be 100% efficient.

The IMOVIO iKIT comes with a webcam, WiFi and 3G access, a full QWERTY keyboard, and runs on Linux. Would you buy? This is a real device currently being pitched to telcos for subsidy.

For me, this is the second generation Palm Pilot.
