The Linkbook is a netbook created by a South African company of the same name and sold by Vodacom, a mobile provider based in South Africa. The Linkbook has an 8.9" TFT display and is presumably equipped with a Motoral based PowerPC processor manufactured by Freescale Semiconductor.
Linkbook website so far offers little information on the netbook's hardware, stating that it is 3G / HSDPA and WiFi enabled, comes with 16GB Flash memory, 2 USB ports, a SIM card slot, microphone, and a camera. No words about dimensions, weight, or battery.
The operating system, referred to as Link OS, is based on Ubuntu and, in addition to the apps you would expect like Web browser, email client, office package, and media player, comes with 7 free games, 10 educational games, as well as an unspecified number of free music and videos.
The Linkbook is offered in South Africa with a 24 months Vodacom contract for R199 per month (about US$ 26.28) bundled with 300 MB of data. With the amount of detail provided so far not too convincing.
