Litl to release TV media hub with Flash in 2011
At this weekend's Flash and the City developer's conference in New York City, Litl will introduce a TV media hub that will support Flash 10.1. To this end, Litl also plans an SDK to give developers an easy framework. The hub is due to go into production early in 2011 and will run on the same litl OS as the company's 12-inch Webbook (pictured).
The SDK will let developers build new apps or port over existing apps. Over the next few months, it will receive new APIs, such as accelerometer movement, video chat, trackpad gestures and microphone input. Interested developers can already apply for a private beta.
The Litl Webbook was originally designed as an even simpler approach to netbooks and gives ready-madeaccess Facebook, The Weather Channel, Flickr, Shutterfly and BakeSpace apps.
