Mini graphics stack gains browser, Linux PMP design

,----[ Quote ]
| An independent software house in China has added a full-featured HTML browser 
| to its dual-licensed, lightweight graphics framework and window manager. 
| Additionally, Beijing Feynman Software is offering a PMP (portable media 
| player) software reference design based on Linux along with its MiniGUI 
| framework.     



Archos Releases 604, 604 Wi-Fi Firmware Into to Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| Thanks to the fact that Archos used GPL and LGPL code in constructing
| their firmware for the Archos 604 and 604 Wi-Fi devices, they're
| forced to release just about the source code for said firmware
| into the public domain.


Review: Archos Media Player Delivers

,----[ Quote ]
| If Apple's iPod is the nicely tuned Porsche of portable media players and 
| Microsoft's Zune is the Jetta, then a new Wi-Fi-enabled unit from Archos is
| the Hummer, a brutish performer with all the tools to navigate the rugged 
| terrain of technology needs on the go.


PMP does WiFi, downloads music, runs Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Flash memory and consumer device specialist SanDisk is shipping the
| first portable multimedia player (PMP) able to download music
| directly via WiFi, without the use of a PC. The "Sansa Connect,"
| which runs embedded Linux and Mono, connects directly to online
| music services via WiFi, according to sources.


iUbi Blue (PMP2500B) popping up at AMP3

| First of all, there's the 4.3-inch (widescreen), 16.7m
| color TFT LCD. Although we thought the GUI looked a bit
| "blue" during the unit's first stages of development, a
| resolution of 480 x 272 never hurt anyone either. Best
| of all is probably the huge bucket of supported file
| formats: MPEG 1, 2, 4 DivX 3.X, DivX 4.X, DivX 5.X,
| Svid, WMV9, H.264, AVI, OGM, WMV 7, 8, MOV and Real
| video. Need more? Sure, MP3, WMA, WAV, OGG, AC-3,
| ASF, AAC-LC, G.726 for video is also included in the
| package deal. Output resolutions upto 720 x 480
| pixels (@30fps) and output volumes of 32mW per
| channel (via a Wolfson 3D sound chip) bolster the
| 2500B's impressive set of specs.


iPod + Linux = Portable Linux?

,----[ Quote ]
| This isn't something that every iPod owner is going to install and mess
| with, and I'm sure it's something that Apple isn?t very happy about
| because they obviously didn't intend for their product to be used in
| this way. However, for those of us who are constantly striving to get
| more out of our hardware, iPodLinux is a fun venture to watch as it
| furthers the reach of the capabilities of both the iPod and Linux.
