$99 Netbook Runs Linux

Cherrypal has released a device touted as the "world's first $99 laptop" and announced an upgrade to a previously released netbook. The "Africa" has a seven-inch display and runs Linux on a 400MHz ARM9 processor, while the "Bing" has an Atom N280 and offers five hours of battery life.

Cherrypal's claim that its new Africa is the world's first $99 laptop is debatable, since there have been netbooks offered for as low as $73 by their Chinese manufacturers. (Admittedly, the aforementioned ARM9-based Sungworld device only ran Windows CE and does not appear to have been made available to U.S. consumers...)
