When the Chumby hit the market two years ago, it was a cute Wi-Fi widget gadget. It would appear that the next iteration, the Chumby One, loses the squishiness, going with a hard frame instead.
What can you expect out of the Chumby One? For starters, a faster processor that’s been bumped up from 350MHz to 454MHz. It still relies on the widget architecture, so you’ll have access to things like Facebook, YouTube, Pandora, and all other web-connected weather, news, and services. If you want one, you’ll have to wait a few more weeks until its official release. It’ll cost you $100.
