Ultimate Digital Tool

Anonymous Patron writes “The Pepper Pad looks like coming close to being the ultimate digital tool, with keyboard, easily readable screen, touchscreen, stylus, headphone jack, microphone jack, sterero speakers, Wi-Fi, IM, browsing, photo album, media collection, and other sharing and collaboration tools. It even runs Linux! It is a 2004 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Innovations Awards Honoree in the Computer Hardware category. The blurb at
LinuxDevices doesn’t say so, but the screen is book page, rather than cinema oriented, so we could also be seeing the arrival of the first successful e-book reading device.”
