While world + dog holds its breath for Apple to pop out the tablets, Toshiba has let out a gasp with its announcement of the JournE touch. This 7in, 16:9 aspect, LED touchscreen, wireless multimedia tablet features an ARM-based processor and runs Windows CE 6.0 Pro. Toshiba JournE tablet Toshiba’s JournE touchscreen tablet is …
When will these companies learn...
that Windows Mobile = FAIL? Lovely-looking device like this, and they put that tosh on it (and not even the pimped up 6.5).
Android, Symbian, Windows 95 - anything, just anything but Windows Mobile 6.
I suppose for those that don't care about such things, CE will probably do. (How vulnerable is it to exploits?) Of more interest, however, is the price and the USB input. If they can manage to get this out the door for £199 or less in the UK, I suspect there will be Linux distros flying around for it pretty quickly (who said penguins can't fly?!)
Win CE? And what are we supposed to install on it? It should run Linux, at least there are some programs for it... FAIL, big, big MSFT sponsored FAIL!
Windows CE? How 1993.

Is that in the same way that mafiosi take care of informers?
Linux Version on the way
Okay peeps, we're just a small fry company to tosh, but we're got a 7" Linux tablet in development which should be available from December/January.
If there are any aspects you'd like to see other than the list below email us.
Spec so far :
Ubuntu - Debian OS
ARM 1200 Processor
7" wide screen touchscreen
Casing is currently being designed and will be either Metal or Rubber. Battery spec hasnt been finalised yet but will be at least 6 hours continuous use.
We're considering a webcam, sound and BT but these were not part of the initial brief.
Our unit is not designed for the consumer market and is more industrial/rugged. We recon costs will be higher than tosh, but the additional casing ruggedness and our low production quantity pushes pricing up.
SO not a unit for nothing but something that might suit your preferred OS.
