LXer: CES 2008: iRiver Wing UMPC
Published at LXer:

Youíve got to hand it to iRiver, they pump out some fantastic industrial design. Latest to prompt a small puddle of drool around my keyboard is the Wing, a flash-based clamshell UMPC with 4-inch touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard. iRiverís press release has it down as running embedded Linux Kernel 2.6, which is strange because some are reporting it to be a WinCE Pro machine; assuming the details from the horseís mouth are correct, the 4GB of memory (and SD expansion) should be plenty for some compact Linux apps.
