Linux based mobile dev kit

Mkit
Huh, USB, touchscreen, WiFi looks like it has everything to tinker with… –

Unicon System’s MKitâ„¢ development kit is the first and only unique mobile Linux development kit on the market. It gives professional developers and manufacturers the ability to create new handheld devices for industrial, security, educational and medical applications, as well as various consumer electronics products.

Our patented, wireless, and mobile chip-on-film Linux computer is based on an ARM9 embedded CPU running full blown Linux 2.6 and attached to the back of a 3.5″ touch screen. It is equipped with multiple connectivity options, including two 2.0 high-speed USB host ports and WiFi.

It is a well-designed license free software stack and debugging JTAG board that makes customization easy and guarantees the shortest time to market.

Development kits are available in different modifications including the world’s first SDIO Linux Development Kit.

  1. I guess this has the advantage of a well-supported Linux distro, but you could always put Linux on a Palm or get one of those Nokia tablets for a lot less…

  2. Yeah, I’d recommend getting a Nokia 770 and playing around with that, if you really want to do Linux on an ARM9. The 770 has everything listed here, except for the motion sensor and the IRDA port. It also only has one USB port. However, it does have an 800×480 touchscreen and a pretty big existing development community. And available some places for under 120 dollars.

  3. No! C’mon!

    You could get 75% of this in the chumby! and it would be more open than this looks. Best part? The chumby only runs $179.

    The Chumby has audio, accelerometer, touchscreen, wifi(usb), i/o, and the schematics are all open source. Jeeze, I’ve even seen 3d x-rays of the board sandwich on bunnie’s site.

    Support open source and open source will support you.

  4. I second the 770 comment, I picked one up a month ago for $130 when they were on woot. Heck, even amazon has them for $140 now. There are so many things to tinker with, that I can’t find enough time to do it all.
