Cheap? Alright! Tablet? Alright! Cheap tablet? Double alright! Cherrypal has just introduced what may actually be the cheapest Android 2.1 tablet to ship in the U.S., with the 7" CherryPad costing only $188. It's a bit smaller than the iPad, and runs a Samsung ARM11 CPU (800MHz) with Android 2.1; Android 2.2 is scheduled for an update in Q4 2010. Unlike the iPad and many other more expensive tablets, this one relies on a resistive touch screen. It has an 800 x 480 resolution display, a built-in gravity sensor, 256MB of DDR2 RAM, 2GB of NAND Flash, a microSD reader and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. It has a... Read more...
Cherrypal, maker of the $99 (Linux) and $118 (Windows CE) "Cherrypal Africa" laptop line, has gone and released another low-priced notebook, this time built around Google's Android platform. It's called the "Cherrypal Asia" and comes in either a basic version with a 7-inch screen, or a 10-1-inch widescreen version. "Android is the ideal operating environment for the ultra-low-cost laptop market," said Max Seybold, Cherrypal's founder. "It combines the stability and flexibility of Linux with the very intuitive user experience of Android. It seamlessly fits into our ongoing cloud computing initiative.... Read more...
OLPC tried its best to come out with a $100 (or so) notebook, but after all was said and done, it failed. Cherrypal is known for producing low-cost wares, and now it's claiming that it has just launched the planet's first $99 laptop. Sure, you can pick up small notebooks overseas for less than $100, but no mainstream US-based machine has hit the level until now. You may remember this company as responsible for producing the world's "greenest desktop computer," and today it's launching its first $99 netbook. Oddly, the machine is titled "Africa," and unlike some of the modern Eee PCs, this one has... Read more...
Remember the CherryPal, cloud-based, thin client we reported about in July that was supposed to be available by the end of that month? The ship date obviously slipped a few months, but it looks like the CherryPal desktop is finally gearing up to make its real-world debut in only a few weeks from now. The CherryPal site announced that the CherryPal is finally ready to ship on Election Day: November 4.   Credit: CherryPalWhen the CherryPal desktop ships it will look a little different than the glimpse we had of it in July. The case is a bit slimmer and with a more polished, glossier look.... Read more...
While there is no shortage of low-power, inexpensive, Linux-based desktop PCs on the market today, few seem to offer a compelling enough solution to make the modest investment worth it. Either the processing power is too little, storage capacity is too meager, or the operating system is too onerous for newbies. New kid on the block, CherryPal, however, might have figured out how to make the low-cost PC actually work right with its $249 CherryPal C100 Desktop "cloud computer." As PC form factors go, it doesn't get much smaller than the C100's 1.3x5.8x4.2-inch (HxWxD) dimensions and 10-ounce weight....
