Wizpy

TurboLinux has delivered Wizpy in Japan, a portable media device. It can be used as a video player, music player, recording, FM radio, picture viewer, e-book… I almost forgot, it has TurboLinux installed and when it is connected to a computer is a portable hard drive as well. Sweet! Wizpy also has 1.71“ OLED screen, 4GB of flash memory, weights only 60g and is accessible through the USB 2.0 port. The best thing about Wizpy is its versatility. If you’re on the move, you can take advantage of the entertainment features that are offered by this all-in-one portable device that looks and acts like a PDA.

One of the biggest advantages of Wizpy is the portable hard drive feature and the bootable Linux operating system. TurboLinux is the popular Linux distribution in Asia, and hence it’s on Wizpy! 🙂 When Wizpy is plugged into a computer it acts like a portable drive and all you have to set is the boot options for the USB and you’re working in TurboLinux. The TurboLinux Fuji operating system itself has a lot of bundled applications, like Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird, Skype, OpenOffice etc. I often use portable applications when I’m working away on other computers. There’s something about the ability to save your accounts, bookmarks, data etc. that makes me love this solution by TurboLinux. Imagine, you just sit on another computer, plug-in your Wizpy and there’s your operating system, data, the familiar look… 🙂 Also, there are a lot of other useful features like the availability to install additional software, make software updates and use P2P services. One of the disadvantages of Wizpy is that the files can be locally stored in the /media folder, accessible when it is attached to the host PC, or in the documents folder, when they are accessible by the operating system itself. Also, the files on the host PC are not accessible. But, Wizpy is an interesting portable media device, and the bootable TurboLinux is a nice thing when you’re going to show off to your friends later on in 2007, when the global release is scheduled.
