Grunding’s Linux-based mobile phone
I must admit, I haven’t heard about Grunding consumer products really since Philipps gave up on the German company in 1998. But now they have released a mobile phone, which is not only single-chip based but also runs on Linux.
The Grunding U900 was presented at the 3GSM in Barcelona and will probably not break your bank account, which is one of the advantages of single-chip solutions, and still offer you quite a few features due to it’s Linux and RTOS (Realtime Operating System): it offers decent multimedia functions with an MicroSD expandable MP3 Player, a 2 Megapixel CMOS sensor camera which supports video calls and both UMTS and EDGE, meaning that it can be used fully in the US and Europe. Bluetooth and USB offer connectivity to your other devices and if you get bored of your MP3 collection, just tune into the radio with the built-in FM receiver.
