Intel's Ruby handheld PC exposed

Posted on Sunday, October 23 2005 @ 15:15:14 CEST by

Engadget got their hands on a PDA-sized PC which was presented by Intel as a prototype in April..
The one we played with was a little scuffed up (not by us, we swear), but James Song from Intel’s Systems Technology Lab schooled us on some of the Ruby’s features, like 8 hours of battery life, built-in wireless, a QWERTY keyboard, a low-voltage Pentium processor, the ability to automatically change screen orientation when you rotate the device (not sure how well that’d work in practice, but it’s an interesting prospect), and an active digitizer display so you can run Windows XP Tablet PC Edition on it (or whatever the Vista equivalent will be). They’re also thinking about developing a stripped down Linux-based OS to run on Ruby, but it wasn’t clear how far along they might be on that.
You can check out the device over here.
