Feeling Like Some Penguin With Your Shift?

"Well, there is not too much info that I can say about it but what you can see in this video. Apparently this person installed Ubuntu got everything working on his HTC Shift."

If you build anything that resembles a computer, someone will put Linux on it. It's true for the HTC Shift apparently, however their isn't much here on how to actually pull it off. Neat trick - anyone out there running Linux on a Windows Mobile device?

Qualcomm Spills the Beans on Windows Mobile 7

"Maybe those calls for 'Vista light' on UMPCs and MIDs are getting answered with Windows Mobile 7. While you could use a Celio REDFLY paired to a Windows Mobile phone for a similar experience now, Qualcomm is already showing off a portable device on Engadget Mobile to exemplify the potential here. In fact, SVP Luis Pinada alluded to that just today: 'Microsoft Windows Mobile 7, which is made for chips used in mobile phones, will be more laptop friendly than older versions of Windows Mobile.'"

According to Engadget Mobile, Qualcomm will be releasing a Windows Mobile 7 powered handset which will be powered by their Snapdragon mobile CPU. The device is supposed to make "big presence in Snapdragon-based devices at CES 2009" and pack a $299USD price point that is almost as tiny as the device pictured above. This tiny powerhouse will also come equipped with 3G mobile Internet technology. All and all, not too shabby Qualcomm! If only 2009 wasn't so far away...
