Last we heard of Always Innovating, the company was talking about its Smart Book hybrid, a combination tablet and netbook, similar in concept to the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. Now they're talking Beagleboard, and more specifically their custom environment, Super-Jumbo, to run Android 2.3, Ubuntu Maverick 10.10, Chrome OS and AI's own AIOS simultaneously on the OMAP3-based 'board.

DIY wearable computer uses Beagleboard & wireless keyboard

Perhaps it makes us unbearably geeky, but we do have more than a soft spot for wearable computers.  Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for what little sartorial dignity we have left these days) manufacturers are proving more reluctant to put out suitable products, and that leaves the niche clear for DIYers.  Martin Magnusson pointed us in the direction of his own project, taking a Myvu Crystal eyepiece and hooking it up to a Beagleboard fanless computer and four AA batteries.

The first batch of those little boards sold out quickly and then a production delay prevented other deliveries to people wanting to get hands on one. The company has announced that its first 2000 boards arrived in the UK this past Monday.

Symbian Foundation roadmap, NFC, social networking hooks discussed

Remember the BeagleBoard prototyping platform, which was put to such cost-effective use in the DIY Beagle MID earlier this year?  Expect to see plenty more of the $149 OMAP3 device in future, now that Symbian Foundation have released their latest build for the platform.  Speaking at Nokia's The Way We Live Next 3.0 conference today, Symbian Foundation's Shaun Puckrin discussed the roadmap for Symbian^3 and Symbian^4, the next-shipping versions of the platform, together with some of the functionality that will be hard-baked into the OS.
