Like the idea of a netbook, but wish you could fit it in your pocket? The Qi NanoNote might fit the bill. This little guy has a 3 inch, 320 x 240 pixel display and a clamshell design with a QWERTY keyboard. It’s designed for thumb-typing, so don’t expect this thing to be able to touch type on this the NanoNote. But that’s the price you pay for pocketability.
Speaking of price, the Qi NanoNote has a pretty low one at just $99. Here’s what you get for your money:
- CPU: 336MHz Xburst Jz4720 (MIPS compatible)
- RAM: 32MB
- Storage: 2GB flash storage
- Display: 3″ color 320 x 240 TFT display
- Expansion: microSD card slot, Mini-USB port
- Other: mic, speaker, headphone jack
- Dimensions: 99 x 75 x 17.5
- Battery: 850mAh Li-ION
The Qi NanoNote boots Linux, and is bootable over USB if you want to test alternate operating systems.The goal is to attract developers who will make the NanNote into something more useful. It could be a portable video player, web browser, or other device — although I don’t actually see anything about wireless capabilities. Qi Hardware plans to release other projets with different hardware down the road.
