CrunchPad: Who?

This is one story that you probably to have know if you claiming to be a gadget enthusiast updated with news as hot as the hot point of Pizza Hut.

Introducing (if you do not recognize the tablet in the picture) the CrunchPad!!!

WHAT: "A a very thin and light touch screen computer, sans physical keyboard, that has no hard drive and boots directly to a browser to surf the web. The operating system exists solely to handle the hardware drivers and run the browser and associated applications."

WHY: To really be portable and mobile in terms of staying connected online. And it is going to cost like a netbook I think.

WHO: Michael Arrington, the founder (Correct me if I am wrong and he actually got a group of people to help him). And... ... Fusion Garage of Singapore is developing the firmware! Now you know why you really have to know this piece of gadget which is currently still in prototype.

WHEN: Nobody knows. But the leaked prototype photos implies that its almost, almost, almost ready.

Apparently,  there is a lot of interest generated overseas for this gadget because of this form factor and features. And also the fact that it is going to operate without an OS. (If it is really going to perform superbly without OS, Fusion Garage will not be just garage anymore.)

I am really going to buy this. Now, we can finally throw pen and paper away. Just imagine if we can carry CrunchPad around and scribble on it... And when is the last time a Singapore company develops something so exciting to the average consumer...
