Its a full fledged computer with a Transmeta 5600 1 Ghz processor, 256 MB of ram and 10 GB hard drive space all fitted into an unbelievable small package.

The 5-inch by 3-inch device runs Microsoft Windows XP on a processor of up to 1 gigahertz. It also bundles 256 megabytes of RAM, a 10 gigabyte hard drive, and two wireless networking connections. A docking cable allows it to connect with an external keyboard, mouse and monitor. It can also be networked to an existing PC or laptop through an Ethernet cable or wireless connection

here is the link to the manufacturers site

Cheaper than I expected, too. I think they said $1000.

Yeah I'm not usually too excited about new Palm Pilot type gadgets, but this one is actually really cool because it's so freakin powerful! And like dcg said the price is really reasonable for what you get.

Can anyone borrow me a a grand?

Can it run Linux?

Seriously, I can't imagine trying to use Windows on that small of a screen... It requires a whole different UI, and with a keyboard I'd imagine a CLI would work well...
