APC Paper: a $99 Android PC That Looks Like a Book

The APC "Paper" integrates the company's $79 APC Rock board with case made from recycled cardboard. It is not the prettiest case you will ever see, but if basic Internet access is all that you need the Paper could be worth a look.

The computer is based on Android 4.0, and uses an 800 MHz Via ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, 512 MB RAM, 4 GB flash storage, as well as HDMI, 2 x USB 2.0, microUSB, audio in/out, and 10/100 Ethernet connectivity. There is also a microSD card slot.

Preorders start in March and will be priced at $99.

    I do not think I would buy one, but the idea is very cool!

    I expected something else after reading the title... I expected an e-reader-like device (with an actual screen or two).

    Those are terrible specs for a box with no display. They need to either cut the price in half or pump up the specs to something like a dual-core 1.2ghz.

    Right now you could buy a tablet more powerful than that, with all the same inputs, AND a 7 inch 1024 by 600 capacitive touch screen, and still pay under $80.
