$132 Mobile Internet Device

Gizmodo reports (via Ben) that the SmartQ 5, a mobile internet device along the lines of the Nokia N810 or iPod Touch, will be priced at the equivalent of $132 in China. This device runs Ubuntu Linux, so running Wireless Generation's new Linux-based client applications should not be a problem (if this ever makes it to the US). Nothing like competition over open platforms to bring down costs.
