from your LimeNote with fingertip. LImeNote is running the amazing LimeOS, which is a new Operating System(OS) that will surprise you with its power-efficient performance.It will help you enjoy all the free services included in this product

Lime are calling the ‘note’ a 3G UMPC.

  • 5.6-inch TFT-LCD flat touch screen
  • CPU:1700MIPS Tri-Core Moc
  • Memory:256MB(512MB optional)DDRII
  • Storage:4GB(or 8GB or 30-200GB HHD)
