This company has an ARM powered phone that goes inside a tablet that locks into a netbook
http://www.alwaysinnovating.com/home/index.htm

That makes sense to me Smile
. . . Lucid 5.2 being Debian/Ubuntu based can be recompiled/repackaged out of ARM compiled packages. We just need enough Puppys with ARM devices
- not happened yet . . .
The situation is much as it was a year ago
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=50970

Kirk brilliantly created a 64 bit Puppy by compiling for 64 bit = Fatdog
and big bass has created a slackware Puppy independent of Woof that could also be transposed with ARM compiled Slackware files
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=432586#432586

Puppy will continue to innovate because we have passionate developers
who care about Puppy.

ARM will come
. . . and other innovations . . .

I dont see it as innovation now. I see it as survival and staying relevant. There are many days now where i dont boot my puppy because my phone can do what i want. Others, new users, and even maybe me will do without a pc/notebook altogether.
If there was a known puppy phone i would switch to it asap.
Eg. This was posted by 3g connected phone when i have free Wifi available for my EeePc. It is a matter of ease and convenice at insignificant cost. And hey i am in the third world where puppies like Wary are aimed.

Here is a cheap ARM based Android Tablet computer as an example on how easy they are to buy but hard to implement Puppy Linux on it despite that android is already installed. .

A kind of Ebook?

Kendo seems to be a name used in Sweden? But the source is Yifang Ebook M7 and they have a spec info here


http://www.yifangdigital.com/product/m7.aspx

* M7 ·7-inch touch screen Android Mobile Internet Device;
* ·In mold-lamination processed and Chromed front casing;
* ·Wi-Fi (or 3G) connection to support web browser, instant messenger, e-mail, online music playback;
* ·With camera and G-sensor function;
* ·Multimedia center supports video/audio playing, photo viewing, clock, alarm,
calculator, and recording (third party software copyright licenses required if necessary);
* ·1 to 8GB built-in NAND flash and maximum 16GB microSD card supported .


Sadly it is an ARM again so still not Puppy for that one but Andriod works on it.

Puppy need to adopt Android in some way that does not get Google angry?

It cost a mere 1500SEK here so it is one of the cheaper Ebook.

If I'm right that works out about $210, or £135 - ouch!

I've just got hold of a Rockchip dualcore 800mhz one called iRobot, running Android v1.5 [which I hope to update to add a few things, like bluetooth, and nimbuzz for IM/Skype] for £75 including post

Only problem so far, is a Chinese only user manual

I've seen VIA VT8505 400mhz versions go for less than £50!

C'mon PuppyArm Wink

In Sweden a used one of IRobot costs 1300SEK so things are that expensive here.

1500SEK are a low price. Ipad most likely costs 7500SEK Iphone4 same price.

Hi all.

Today I have been on the search for a small browser that
    a) runs CUPS
    b) downloads stuff from the net
    c) is stable

They are the criterea for a possible Midori replacement in Lupu/Luci. I tried Netsurf, HV3 and some others including Surfer used by BarryK awhile ago in quirky and wary. It was the front runner because it could download stuff, but failed the CUPS test and the stability test! (and it was a female dog to compile!)



Well you may ask.. what has this to do with the price of sardines?

The developer of Surfer is actually developing a Smartphone OS. DeforaOS.
Looks like I need a cheapo Smartphone to check some of this out... goodbye trusty nokia 6110!

More info.. http://trac.hackable1.org/trac/wiki/DeforaOSSmartphone

Now, I wonder if this guy, Pierre Pronchery, would be interested in collaborating. He has (a non-funtional atm) i386 version of his operating system available for download. It's interesting stuff.

If Puppy is to go front leg (puppies don't have arms..) then we need to study what these guys are doing, I'm sure there are more like him

Cheers

Nice Find 01micko Very Happy

So have you emailed Pierre for interest in collaboration?

Though I'm sure he'd sooner some of our devs collaborate with him/his project...

PuppyFrontLeg is an interesting thought Laughing

Browser possibles....?

Surf http://surf.suckless.org/

Uzbl http://www.uzbl.org/

Chromium/cups https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/group/chromium-dev/browse_thread/thread/542d51c64530ecb9

tricky to find light AND stable...

Edit: Maybe Arora? http://code.google.com/p/arora/

Is there some block to using operamini? Openmokko figures prominently in mickos link so is direct collaboration with openmokko also an option? Amigo hasnt shown any interest in posting his unfinished arm work online. Debian and ubuntu also have models to copy. Freerunner is mentioned as a platform although availability is an issue for me at least. If someone with knowledge could select a phone to target.

Sylvania is offering Net-book in the U.S. for $99.00 at CVS pharmacy. Currently running CE-6 from MS.

PLEASE... someone start the project.... mine is a red brick as it sits now, 7" screen and small keyboard, three USB ports.... etc... Second version out in the last month or so.. same price... is tablet with Android. Both of course from China.

Have not read it lately, but month ago there is a long blog on Ubuntu with lots of folks playing.
