Yes, I'm also waiting for 3G or whatever mobile broadband tech to take
off here, hopefully the pricing will be not too much of a rip-off.

It has touchscreen mentioned on their wiki but I'll wait for someone
who actually buys a device to post online/blog as a confirmation,
would be nice if a stylus and finger would both work.

So its not completely open, they mention the CAD files are available
but the 3D chip is closed:

but its still cool anyways.
