    Have VIA learned anything and implemented support for 800x480 resolution on these boards? Because that would be an incentive as good as any to buy one.

    .

    I'm curious and excited to see what new projects will come from this new form factor. I'm imagining that we will see an in dash, retractable screen with PC all in a nice mini din housing for starters.

    As far as the concerns on speed we're going to have to look towards embedded OS solutions rather than bloated full XP installs. This might be a little too technical for some.

    For the hobbiest community this board might interest many because of its size, however we will probably never get a chance to fully utilize its true power. To begin the hobbiest interested in using this board would need to re-develop a richly robust embedded OS that can run apps like GPS,DVD and Play music. Then of course develop a "front end" that is efficient enough to carry out these tasks without stressing the system. The front ends we have avilable today can't cut it. I'm thinking of apps coded in VBEmbedded or some language that was designed to run on Mobile/Embedded devices.

    The nice thing here is that Visual Studio 2005 (for you programmers) is comming out soon, in fact the beta has been out, has a great IDE for developing embedded applications. This might make it a little easier to develop a front end.

    My point here is that typically us hobbiest run a one man show and that doing these tasks by ourselves would be nearly impossible (I'm sure we all have full time jobs and after work hour lives).

    As much as I'd want to begin re-writing a front end and re-developing a lighter version of windows, then of course re-designing a casing for the new nano boards somehow I think that spending the 450.00 right now will end up as a waste in the future for me.

    I'm sure however that a year or two down the road when we've collaborated enough within this community, some great products (including software) will be available for these boards at which point I may re visit the idea of purchasing a nano board.

    I got my nano !!!!!
    is it tiny !!!!
    already started hacking away at it (sorry Armen)
    chopped some of the heatsink away to make it and the M1 atx power supply fit into an old cd rom case
    first draft pics are attached
    some showing the mobo in the palm of my hand

    others showing the draft case design

    I think its worth the extra cost, which will drop somewhat in time

    This is a work in progress and the case most likely will evolve to something far more special and deserving of nano status

    I wish I had money for this, it would make a great board for my current project (see sig). However, right now I'd go with an embedded board 3.5" board with a single input voltage for that kind of price. I guess it's good for all you 'early adopters' to have a fun toy before anybody else.

    SAScooby: Your system-in-a-CDROM looks cool so far.
