TechCrunch "CrunchPad"

Technology site TechCrunch is expanding beyond being one of the best sources for news about Web 2.0-type companies and have been driving development of an inexpensive, touchpad computer they've dubbed the “CrunchPad“.

When launched, it will likely have WiFi, a camera, flash memory (instead of a hard drive), a full Linux install and retail for somewhere between $200-300 USD.  Here's an introductory video and the second part is included in the entry I linked to in the last paragraph.

    Yeah I totally saw that and want one.
    I have been debating buying an iPod Touch just so I can read things in the Internet when out and about, but it is hard to justify the $400 tag when you already have a standard iPod.

    My debate is more iPhone v. iTouch – I'm not a cell phone user currently (Shea and I own one between us that we mostly keep in the car for emergencies) so I wonder if I'd get enough use out of an iPhone. (Probably.) But I've also heard they gouge you – especially in Canada for some reason.
    But back to the topic at hand, if they could keep their price point low, I'd love to have a device like this dedicated to surfing and not much more.
