"Hitachi Ltd. has unveiled a new tablet-type Internet appliance based on Transmeta Corp.'s Crusoe microprocessor and the Linux operating system that also features support for wireless networking."

"The Flora-ie 55mi, which went on sale in Japan on Wednesday, has at its heart a Crusoe TM3200 microprocessor running at 400MHz and the Midori Linux operating system. A companion keyboard and mouse are available, although the device can also be controlled via the 10.4-inch TFT (thin film transistor) LCD (liquid crystal display) touch panel."

"The built-in modem supports the IEEE 802.11b wireless networking standard and speeds of up to 11M bps (bits per second), although no base station is provided. Users will have to also buy a 802.11b-based home networking system or modem adapter with wireless support to connect to the Internet."
