    Interesting new Laptop



    litl :: webbook
    Cards on Vimeo

    Litl OS is an operating environment written by Litl for their Easel webbook. The underlying operating system is a mobile/embedded distribution of Ubuntu provided by Canonical, Ltd. The user interface is written largely in Mozilla's dialect of Javascript using the gjs binding to access GNOME and Clutter UI elements. Software updates are automatically delivered nightly over the Internet connection and the OS stores browser cards, web channels, settings and contacts online online at Amazon S3 using a web service running on Google's App Engine and the Django framework. Litl OS can synchronize information from the Internet to the webbook and between webbooks. Portions of the operating system's source code can be obtained by Litl owners on DVD from Litl.

    Running Litl OS, the 3.38-pound Litl Easel packs a 1.86GHz Atom Z540 processor beneath that 12.1-inch 1280x800 pixel display, 2GB of storage, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 802.11b/g WiFi, and webcam all powered by a 2600MAh battery. There's also HDMI, a single USB jack, and an IR receiver for a Litl remote

    We built litl to enjoy the web at home. When you see our main navigation screen, you'll immediately know how to use it. Just point and click. Litl eliminates menus, icons, and folders. In fact, we've removed all computer administrative debris between you and the web.

    Driving litl is a joy. We’ve built the browser right into the user interface so it’s instantly available. A search box stands ready at all times. We always give you a full screen view; you never resize or juggle overlapping windows. And no matter where you are, hit the litl blue button and get back home.

    When you flip litl into easel mode navigation remains easy. Inspired by an old television dial, we use a wheel to change channels. And for the remote, we've replaced a billion buttons with the same wheel design. Simple.

    Well they are just a small company if they start manufacturing in bulk the cost will come down. Something like this could be useful in schools I think if it was a lot cheaper and suitably robust.
