Wireless Computer Shrunk Smaller Than a Credit Card

Israeli company Compulab recently announced a computer that manages to cram a complete PDA into a device two-thirds the size of a credit card. The CM-X270 is a small Computer-on-Module board designed to serve as a building block in embedded applications. The CM-X270W has all the components required to run operating systems such as Linux and Windows CE.

The feature set of the CM-X270 module combines a 32-bit CPU, SDRAM, Flash Disk and vital computing peripherals. For embedded applications, the CM-X270 provides a 32-bit PCI bus, 100Mbit Ethernet, serial ports, general purpose I/O lines and many other essential functions. An on-board 2700G Multimedia Accelerator enhances the feature set with support of XGA display resolution and MPEG-2 / MPEG-4 decoders. An integrated WLAN (WiFi) interface implements 802.11b industry standard wireless connectivity.

With computers getting this small, it won't be long before we'll all be carrying our own PC's around with us in our wallets. That's true mobility.
