Litl webbook comes as a big surprise!

by editor on Mar.30, 2010, under Litl


Key features of the Litl:

  • WebOS


  • 3 hour battery life
  • 0.3 MP camera
  • Requires a reliable net connection for running most applications.

The litl seems like a laptop at first. Turn it on and you see one of the finest netbooks running an intuitive web OS, completely designed for the web with a focus on usability.

The litl comes with a 12.1″ display an is powered by a 1.6Ghz Atom with 1Gb SDRAM and 2gb of memory. Since the ipad got released it has become a requirement to specifically mention on board camera, microphone, USB and wifi. It uses a solid state drive which makes it free of moving parts. Litl also sports a plug n play HDMI port for using external displays. Theres a full keyboard too, which can be used in “laptop” mode. The device has a small fan which we wish could have been eliminated.

The litl decodes HD videos, so you can look forward to crisp 720p videos on your tv screen. We also found that the software transformed certain websites such as facebook to look different on its browser, this wasn’t too appealing to us. Not sure how this will be taken by the websites that are transformed.

The litl supports an innovative “easel” mode which makes it look like a digital photo frame, to function as a display system that can be kept in your living room. In this mode you can browse through a series of applications using a wheel similar to iriver’s spinn. The easel mode definitely fits in with the litl display’s viewing cone of 178 degrees.

With its WebOS, the litl removes the hassles of configuring/maintaining an operating system. No settings, no configurations, no messing around with drivers. Consider it as a system which has the latest of the best applications at the touch of a button.

At $399 the device is well priced.

Here’s a video of the Litl:

The litl was designed by a startup of 40 persons, and considering the amount of innovation in this device we hope to see more such products from this company. Wonder what the two IR receivers onboard are going to be utilized for.
