This is interesting; ┬áThe Zii EGG. Using Andriod and the OS called Plaszma, Zii is calling this the cornerstone of ‘Stem Cell Computing’. With this unit that means 24 floating point processors delivering 8 GFLOPS of computing power using a ZMS-05 ARM dual core chip. The EGG hardware also sports Open GL ES graphics capabilities, outputs 1080P HDMI, and records with an HD camera. WiFi, BlueTooth, GPS, and surprisingly the Opera browser with Flash are also features on this device which looks sort-of like an iPhone to me. But this is some serious hardware, and I’m really interested in seeing what can be done on the platform now that the EGG and SDK are released.

If you’re interested in picking up your own EGG, they’re running a special right now: You get the Zii Egg Developer handheld free ( It’s not a phone btw ) with the purchase of a Plaszma SDK Starter Kit at $399.

    Hey!!
    That’s sounds very good.
    Does someone know if it’s easy to install softphose (or software in general) like Ekiga (http://ekiga.org/)?
    I would need it for SIP connection.
