"Designed as a stand-alone OS built around a Linux kernel and powered by its own ARM chip, Latitude ON stretches the life of a notebook's battery from hours to days by sidestepping Windows entirely.

"Codenamed 'Blacktop', because it aimed to give laptops the same fast functionality as a BlackBerry when it comes to tasks such as email ('Blacktop' is of course a portmanteau of 'BlackBerry' and 'laptop'), today sees the full version of Latitude ON makes its debut.
