TheAustralian: Itsy has research in hand

“Designed around a 200MHz Intel StrongARM processor and
running the Linux operating system, the Itsy also features a
230×200 pixel screen, and built-in microphone, speaker and infrared
port.”

“The device, code named Itsy, includes much of the technology
likely to be incorporated in future handheld devices, and is
designed to encourage the development of new user interfaces and
applications.”

“One of those interfaces, dubbed rock’n’scroll, enables the user
to control of device by tilting it backward and forward.”

“The Itsy is powerful enough to run a user interface based on
speech recognition.”

“Australian researchers had ported the kernel of the Windows CE
operating system to the Itsy as proof of its viability as a
commercial platform.”
