Yes, the rumors are true. In October, chumby industries will be launching the new chumby one. It is every bit a chumby, but still a little different from the chumby classic that you know and love. Obviously a different look and some other differences that we will soon tell you about, for example an optional battery capability.
For those playing at home, the Chumby is one of the few 100% open source hardware projects in the retaily commercial space. Bunnie and gang have done an excellent job with keeping the design open as well as improving the next gen Chumby. Looks like the new model will have: FM radio and the processor has been bumped up from 350mhz to 454mhz.
