Will Wizpy Start OS on USB Flash Drive Trend?
Could Turbolinux really develop a true portable PC which fits on a flash drive? Turbolinux introduces (what I call) their version of U3 called Wizpy. The USB Wizpy device is 60GB of flash storage with 1.71 OLED display and together with Linux create a portable computer system. The flash device then uses any PC for it’s input capability (monitor, keyboard and mouse) to function as a normal PC. No files, records or maleware are left on the host computer system after disconnect. Along with running Linux, which you can do on a flash drive anyway (jump), the USB powered gadget offers audio, video and photo utility as well. The OLED display is used for the entertainment utilities, Turbolinux doesn’t expect you to view your computer on a 1.7 OLED display! The Wizpy is available in Japan for now, but expected to hit the US and other markets before the end of Q1 2007.
