Insignia Infocast 8″ Media Display

This Insignia Infocast 8 Inch Media Display is a Chumby O/S powered web computer which delivers Internet radio, video and music playback, digital photo frame functionality and various fun type applications for download.

The Chumby connection means that theoretically it’s open source hackable, not sure how that plays out in real life though.


It features an SVGA touchscreen, 800Mhz processor, 2GB of RAM, WiFi, USB ports, speakers and a natty little desk stand.
