Although I’ve tried several attempts by Nokia and others, I haven’t seen the perfect ‘Firefox computer’ that TechCrunch has just challenged it’s community to build:

Today at Techcrunch we announced that we are building our own web tablet hardware device. This all stems back from a conversation a few weeks ago when we were discussing the ultimate web browsing/cloud computing client hardware. The iPhone is nice but too small, and most laptops are over-powered for the task. With applications on the web most of us just need a web browser most of the time, so the ideal device would be a light-weight small tablet running nothing more than Firefox on a decent screen and with a WiFi connection.

I’ve been searching for this perfect device for a long time. I’ll be one of the first in line to buy it.
