Like a cut down version of the fit-pc?
The fit-pc2 has all that plus HDMI, SPDIF, Wi-Fi and IR, for the same kind of $$. And (according to the marketing material), lower power consumption. And about half of the size. And 8GB SSD.
isn't Toshiba's own 240GB MK2431GAH a larger-capacity 1.8" hdd ? I think the article refers to the largest single-platter 1.8" drive .
What has this got to do with GPL?
I'm not sure how the comments of this article seem to have been hijacked by ill-informed 'Google don't adhere to GPL' rants - the Android OS is open-source and freely downloadable/buildable. Just because T-Mobile sold you a phone that has development features disabled doesn't mean the phone isn't running an open-source operating system. The details are no different than for all the other millions of embedded devices that run some variant of Linux. I also can't see any problem either with Google offering for sale development kits that exhibit different behaviour from retail phones.
