Could this be the Google Tablet…..

Not too sure, but the Zoom OMAP34x-II Mobile Development Platform looks too “finished/flashy” to be a Mobile Development Platform (MDP). I guess time will tell……For now we can all drool over the pics….and btw, if you have $1150, you can beat the crowd and own one today.

Out of the box features of the Zoom OMAP34x-II MDP :

  • 4.1″ WVGA multi-touch display with a QWERTY keypad in a landscape, handheld form factor
  • High performance OMAP3430 applications processor that supports up to 720p HD video encode/decode
  • Support for popular leading mobile operating systems, including Android Mobile Platform, Linux, LiMo, Symbian OS and Microsoft(r) Windows(r) Mobile
  • Wireless connectivity technology from TI, including WiLinkTM 6.0 (WL1271), a single chip with Wi-Fi(r), Bluetooth(r) and FM functionality; and NaviLinkTM GPS functionality
  • 8-megapixel camera sensor
  • Optional 3G modem solution, as well as flexibility to support any third party modem through an extension card
  • An optional DLP Pico projection module will be available, taking mobile content from “tiny screen” viewing to a shareable “big screen” format
The DLP Pico projector is a interesting critter. It is literally tiny. The above picture gives you an idea of it’s size compared to the power adapter. You can pick one up for about $350 at Digi-Key.com ‘s online store. The tech specs for this little guy are:

  • Resolution: 0.17-inch HVGA (320×480 device creating a 640×480 projection)
  • Brightness: 7 lumens
  • Contrast ratio: 1000:1
  • Throw ratio: 1.89
  • Processor: MSP430 microcontroller with download port
  • Light source: Solid-state 3 LED
  • Video input: DVI-D 888RGB, VGA 60 Hz
  • Dimensions: 44.8 x 67.4 x 14.2 mm3

    not sure if anyone reads this but this is a development kit shown by Logic made for TI as a dev kit for the OMAP/wireless platform. I saw a demo from the Logic people.
