More MiniPCs – But You Still Can't Buy One
from the willing-to-beta-test-here dept
Just last week we were talking about all those companies building very cool looking fully powered handheld computers that you couldn’t buy, and now there’s one more to add to the list. Paul Allen is backing a company called FlipStart, which is working on yet another different miniPC design. This one basically just looks like a laptop that has been shrunk down to a quarter of the size and fits in your palm. It definitely looks cool, but does anyone else remember that IBM sold machines that looked exactly like this in Japan years ago? At the time, the theory was that not enough people really wanted such a tiny PC in the US. Have times changed? In the meantime, this is yet another company that has announced a cool looking miniPC, but hasn’t actually sold one yet. Will any of these products ever hit the market?
