Intel, sign me up

Look, I get overly exceited about stuff – sometimes that’s unwarranted, other times, it totally is. I believe this is a good reason to be at the edge of my seat: Intel showed off a prototype of a handheld – based on their Moorestown platform – today at the Intel Developer Forum. And I’m drooling. Here’s why:

I have an iPhone and I love it. I love how it looks, how it feels, the possibilities it has as a platform, the whole experience. But now I want this. Sure, the form factor may be weird because it’s tall/wide, but if the tilt experience is as good as on the next few videos, I’m hooked.

Now obviously these are marketing videos, and a device like this is only as good as the combination of hardware and software it uses. But for now you’ve got my attention, Intel. Where do I sign? For those of you looking for more information, check out Intel’s press release or Boing Boing Gadgets, who are running an article on the prototype as well.

    Well, the prototype has some interesting interaction details but the ergnonomy of the device is rather strange. One thing is for sure: portable, location-aware, multitouch devices are here to stay. I´m keen to seen what lies down the “road”…

    Would it have a virtual keyboard on each side of the device for typing? That doesn’t seem ideal
