Hey everyone, checking in from Nuremberg, where I’m sitting at the Oracle booth at the Embedded World tradeshow. Pretty excited about something that I think a lot of you’ll appreciate:
This is the demo I’m showing people. That tablet is a Viewsonic “gtablet” (Model UPC300-2.2). The Oracle guys ripped android off of it and installed a distro of Linux called OpenEmbedded. I’m not exactly sure of the procedure, but I’m getting the instructions.
The important thing is that this thing runs full JavaSE 7 for ARM. That means it runs a Vision client like a champ, and you can pick these things up on eBay for sub $200. Pretty cool, huh?
