Tech journalists see so many products—and problems with those products—it’s no surprise that one may be able to build them better.
Now I am not willing to lose a few fingerprints to soldering, but TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington is a tad less fearful. He is currently showing off his second prototype of a touchpanel, which is known as the CrunchPad.
Arrington says that the 12-inch, 1024x768 touch display has a 4:3 aspect ratio, a VIA Nano processor, an on-screen keyboard, 1GB of memory and a 4GB flash drive. Other features include a webcam, Wi-Fi, and support for Hulu, Joost, and a ton of other sites that you spend way too much time on. It also has a very nice $299 price tag—assuming you ever have the chance to buy one.
We’re not sure whether or not this unit will ever reach other people’s hands. However, plenty of readers and investors seem interested. You can see why in the video demo below.
