Always Innovating Mini Book
Mini Book®: the free mobile web experience

You are tired of those phone plans that are rip-off and you can't even do a phone call in San Francisco or New York? At Always Innovating, we are not tired, we are exhausted by the scandalous behaviors of AT&T (US), Orange (Europe), and others. It's why we have decided to create the first 100% open Mobile Internet Device that offers free calls.

Not only you can enjoy a wireless Internet mobile experience, but you should find in the Mini Book all the technologies you want: wifi b/g/n, bluetooth, multitouch support, video output and conferencing, as well as all our latest software innovations.

Taking in account the outstanding new Texas Instruments chipset capabilities shipped in it, the full openness philosophy behind the device, and our sensibility for a neat design fitting within 9.3mm of thickness, we are pretty confident you will adopt the Mini Book as your first travel companion.
