Not immediately tempted, but obviously I'm thinking... can we get Fitaly onto it??
Hardware compatibility aside, I suppose the first questions are whether Fitaly is also compatible with "WINE", a Windows-ish layer on Linux - and sufficiently so to be used as a keyboard for Linux.
I think it's quite likely to appear normal but do nothing useful at all. In fact I think I may have asked but forgotten the answer.
And why this device particularly... it has a TV remote controller.
I am presuming that with just a little more work, this Pepper Pad could be used as simply a keyboard running Fitaly, to a desktop PC, cordlessly. Anything that'll take an infra-red keyboard.
A darned expensive keyboard, but there you are. ;-)
You also have to jump through hoops to run WINE itself or other chosen applications on the basic Pepper Pad. Newer models are more open, I think.
And admittedly cordless keyboard is a little way away from remote control, too. But there could be simple ways around that too.
I've brought it up before with PDAs in mind. But this one has a larger screen.
But as a matter of fact I'm now thinking of trading over to UMPC - Samsung's Q1 - still running Windows Tablet Edition. And taking Fitaly with me, of course!
