play with it in a VM:
...so, has any one tried this on a 7" CarPC??? This seems like an awesome solution if you can get a decent GPS app.
I had a related idea which turned up this thread in a search. Has any one been able to run Windows Mobile 6.1 on a CarPC platform (with a device emulator or something)? These new touch screen phones come up to 800x480 resolution now with the HTC Touch HD. I would like to demo the music/nav interfaces on my 7" touchscreen. Has this been done?
They released a new image last week and it runs great on my machiene. It doesnt look as pretty as some of the RR skins we have here but it just needs time. I like the fact i can boot from my usb thumb drive and make changes and it doesn't affect my hard drive. Many of the applications are not touch screen friendly yet, but since it is designed for mobile devices im shure it will come. Right now im bouning back and forth between this and windows to see what i can come up with. I know with linux boot time can be reduced significantly.
Ubuntu Mobile 8.10 or a daily build better than that is what I will be installing. I ordered the hardware yesterday, so should get it before the weekend. I bought: Intel Atom board, 2 GB RAM, 80 GB HDD, 9" touchscreen, M2-ATX PSU. I want to build it in the center console of my car, and as soon as the Google phone comes out, I'll buy that and a bluetooth kit to use as modem/GPS.

Nice. Have to keep checking back on this.

This should work on any Intel/AMD/etc processor.....

CarPC progress: 95%
I'm thinking of using Ubuntu in my car PC because I only have one copy of XP and that's being used on my desktop. I don't want to fork out cash to buy another copy of XP because most of the ones I've seen here are about AUD $70 and I've already exceeded my car PC budget. Anyway, Linux plays audio and video files fine, and that's the main thing I'll be doing with my car PC
Ubuntu Mobile looks interesting. I'd like to get my hands on a copy.
