"China-based SmartDevices started selling its SmartQ5 and SmartQ7 mobile Internet devices (MIDs) earlier this year. Instead of the MID-typical Intel Atom CPU, however, both devices are equipped with a Samsung S3C6410 system-on-chip (SoC). Incorporating an ARM1176 core, the SoC offers "advanced hardware blocks for multimedia processing," according to Samsung. The S3C6410 has been incorporated in a Samsung/Chumby reference design for digital picture frames (DPFs).

"The Lighthouse SQ7 can be set up for DPF duty itself, thanks to its fold-out stand and photo slideshow feature, but it's primarily billed as a mobile device. Measuring 7.9 x 4.7 x 0.9 inches (200 x 120 x 24mm) and weighing 17 oz (480 g), the device's has a 4500 mAH battery that provides up to five hours of active use or up to twelve hours in standby mode, says AdelaVoice."
