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.

MK2431GAH?

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 .

Google bars Android app makers from their own apps

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.
