Tuesday, October 21st, 2008


iKit, a new so called easy and mobile “Simputer”, is innovated and developed by IMOVIO. Its so beautiful that it just fits ones palm. Warning to Palmtops ! By iKit you can not only do your mobile stuff but also can do all your PDA stuff and much more.

iKit is a handheld device, which runs on Linux operating system which consists of 2.8-inch screen with 320 x 240 resolution, 128MB of ROM, 64MB RAM, a 312MHz processor and the Opera mini browser. Not only this it also microSD, has Bluetooth 2.0, a QWERTY keyboard and an optional 0.3 megapixel webcam. iKit is designed as a 24*7 internet ready device. The battery lasts for three hours, with 250 hours standby. The stylish iKIT is a dedicated chat, email and internet accessory and unlike smartphones it is fully optimised for that purpose.
