Staying with Intel. Menlow continues as the XP platform
No windows on Moorestown. At least the initial or primary version of it.


* Compal KAX-15
* Digicube on Menlow
* XPPhone - Geode
* Viliv X70 EX
* Inproved Viliv S7

Moving up the chain....

How about Pineview for netbooks and high-end UMPCs?
We didn't get GPU info although there are some rumors around.
Why? What will it bring? Is it a risk to move from the trusted platform?
Cost? Efficiency? Power? Video decoding.

Netbooks continued....

netbooks wave continue - a ton of new designs but nothing groundbreaking except....
Nvidia ION
Multitouch T91
Moblin 2 for netbooks
What about Win 7. Will think slow down now as we move towards September/October

I know its the false post, but it would be very nice if you can take the time to look into the pocketables forum - which ssd you used or recommend for the upgrade of the viliv s5.
