"The CrunchPad is further equipped with 1GB RAM and 4GB flash,
as well as WiFi, a camera, and accelerometers that can
automatically adjust the screen from landscape to portrait. The
device also includes Ethernet and USB ports, a speaker connection,
and, at least for the prototype version, a monitor port. The
12-inch display provides a 4:3 aspect ratio, and the 1024 x 768
resolution is said to be high enough to handle "the "vast majority"
of websites without the need for horizontal scrolling.
"The 12.5 x 9.7 x 1.3-inch case is "about twice as thick as it
needs to be without further engineering," writes Arrington. The
three-pound weight is said to be two ounces less than an Asus EeePC
netbook. This, too, could be reduced, he suggests, by swapping out
the prototype capacitive resistance display with a screen that
would require fewer than the current set of four batteries. The
case was designed and built by David Yarnell and Greg Lalier from
Dynacept, says TechCrunch.:
