$99 netbook for the developing world

Via PC World, a company called Cherrypal introduced a $99 netbook based on smartphone hardware. This isn’t a power netbook for the latte set, but it may prove to be a godsend for people looking to get internet access and processing capacity in the developing world.

My very first thought was that this would be a perfect platform for PC-based robotics applications, presuming that the hardware is capable of supporting things like servo controllers and sensor multiplexers.

Definitely something to keep an eye on.
