"yo dawg, i heard you like ram, so we put ram in your ram, so you can randomly access while you randomly access..."

What can be done with this thing? It's too slow for a media center, can't run windows, etc.

That is incredible! It may not be the most powerful system out there, but it really is amazing!

@docodine
I don't know what you'd use it for. potentially something like an awesome phone of sorts?

The moral of the story is... you really should read text, when you are interacting with a medium which uses text to convey information.

I can see the attraction in having such a small "computer", however what is the point of having it fit into a SODIMM? They are designed to have memory put in them, not entire computers, so I assume they provide no more than power and a safe place to live? If that is the case, would it not be better to have a proper power connector to un-tie it more a parent board?

It's the size of a SODIMM. It's not designed to fit the SODIMM slot of a laptop. For hybrid set top boxes, it would make a great platform.

no forum link?
seems to be a new "feature" since CPC is on board
i would love to see this board in a handset
so i could just swap my handsets cpu for a faster one after a year
i wait to see usb ports on handsets like the latest linux power n900

I love the idea of this... and E150 (I can't euro sign) for it seems pretty fair

I'm thinking torrent box within an existing computer case

According to the picture, it does actually seem to SO-DIMM based, for connection between the daughterboard and motherboard.

Yes,

The tiny SODIMM-factor TRITON-TX51 requires a baseboard to break out the connectivity, but this can be shrunk via a design service

Seems to me like should some enterprising companies also start to manufacture inexpensive compatible parts, especially the baseboard in smaller form, the potential is there for cheap boutique or home-made mobile PDA/phones & any number of other discreet connected devices. Perhaps some of the more enterprising hackers will come up with a way to get the iPhone OS to run on it - same processor after all!

How long before we see a computer running Fedora or CE built into an action man or a 1:43 scale model car ? ...that'd be a neat mutimedia presentation platform actually...

Yes but it also stated " full compatibility for Windows CE 6.0" Whether it was revealed on Linux for Devices or not, this product is NOT Linux exclusive. Which is a positive as it would be a shame to limit this device to just Linux.

I don't know about you guys, but I have the feeling that many of the interesting devices shown at linuxfordevices.com never show up for sale in a large scale... Most of the time you only find them at industrial web stores.
I wonder if this will be the case...

Anyway, the design isn't new:

Perhaps the key is exposure, on websites like this. For UK buyers, availability is also relevant!
