At its core, the i.note is an embedded WinCE.NET device with a 7ˇ¨ TFT LCD and based on Intelˇ¦s PXA255 400 MHz CPU. It can display image files, playback MPEG 1/2 movies, and play MP3 files using the CompactFlash and Secure Digital card slots. A built in silicon TV tuner allows users to watch analog TV with support for worldwide TV standards so users can watch TV wherever they are in the world. It can also display video from external analog sources using S-Video and composite video inputs.
The i.noteˇ¦s 1.3 megapixel camera can swivel 210˘X, letting users take pictures and self-portraits as well as live video. It can read Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Acrobat files and can present them using its S-Video, composite video, or VGA outputs. The included remote control allows users to control slideshows while presenting. The i.note can connect to other computers using its USB port, IrDA port, RS232 port, or its RJ45 Ethernet port. Using the Ethernet port, it can browse the web, send and receive email and instant messages, or act as an HTTP or FTP server. With the built-in camera, users can also video conference and send streaming video over the internet.
Expandability of the i.note is accomplished through the USB, CompactFlash, Secure Digital, and PCMCIA ports, and WinCE.NET allows applications to be downloaded and run on the device. More than a PDA, more than a personal media player, and more than a portable TV, the i.note blends these technologies together to create an innovative, powerful, and versatile product unmatched by any other.
