"In the latest bid to simplify Web surfing, upstart Net appliance maker Qubit has teamed with software developer Be for use of its Stinger operating system in a new line of wireless devices.
Qubit announced that it will adopt the Stinger OS from Be for its WebTablet, a simplified Web surfing and email device that looks like an Etch a Sketch. The product, due by the second quarter of next year, will sell for around $400, according to the company.
The WebTablet belongs to a family of pad products vying for attention in the emerging market for easy-to-use appliances for the home. Their main features are large screens and the ability to connect to the Internet wirelessly, either through a wireless modem or a wireless "bridge" to a wired PC or a docking station. Either way, the device lets users read on the Web or send email from anywhere in the house."
