"I got a quick demo video (left) with the company's CEO,
Gregoire Gentil, who is French. He couldn't show me the user
interface on the prototype hardware he had with him, but says it
will be easy to use with big, fat American fingers (he didn't
actually say that).
"The product will run a Linux OS, Gentil said, and it's the
first Netbook based on an ARM CPU, not the typical Atom found in
most Netbooks. He says users can expect 10 to 15 hours of battery
life. The product will be $299 without the keyboard, $399 with. It
ships this spring, but you can preorder now."
