Simputer: Ultra-cheap Linux handheld

Author: JT Smith

ZDNet reports on the progress of the Linux-powered Simputer. "The handheld computer is commonly seen as a geek toy for affluent
mobile professionals. However, the Simputer will change all that by bringing portable
computing and the information age to developing countries.

The finished product will be slightly larger than a Palm handheld but will operate as a simple
portable computer."
