Guest Deleted_Account Posted April 9, 2010 Share Posted April 9, 2010 Me and a few class mates our making an open source ipod touch alternative for our final project. So far we have 2 prototypes with working FirmWare here are the specs thus far: 1) Open Source Debian based OS running on an ARM processor 2) USB micro port for charging and downloading music/apps/videos/custom os 3) NAND for memory (8GB for now) 4) internal bootloader (open source and will allow booting up to 3 OS's which any can make) 5) app store (more like cydia or ubuntu software center allowing any apps on our servers as well as other servers) Anyone will be able to make an app all apps will be accepted (ROMS etc must be in your own source or "unofficial sources" for legal reasons as i am unwilling to take this risk personally) apps will be free and/or paid (even trials) and 100% profit to Devs (even on my servers) 6) Hardware will be open source as well so anyone willing can build their own 7)SDK and other programs will be released to flash OS's/design programs/etc. 8) Will run debs (or a variation of) so can be written in almost any language as long as it runs as a deb with 2 exceptions: i) python will run through either terminal or a built in "run" type GUI for ease of use ii) java will work natively 9) built in terminal with root access 10) the following apps are stalk: i) appstore ii) terminal iii) music/video iv) settings V) notes/calender/mail IV) web browser (opera mini) VI) file browser Vii) too be announced soon :P 11) WIFI 802.11 b/g/n 12) Bluetooth (not in prototype working on it though) 13)speaker built in 14)microSD card slot(so far upto 16GB going for 32GB though) 15)IR (maybe if enough people want it NOTE: THIS IS A PROTOTYPE AND WILL NOT BE RELEASED FOR A WHILE! WE ARE WORKING ON RELEASING DEV VERSIONS ASAP! our estimated price for final release is between $50 and $100 so far the OS is VERY limited all hardware aspects are done we just need to finish the OS and SDK's Any suggestions are welcome, x942 P.S: I will post pictures ASAP as well Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
