They're going to release a phone, upgraded boards for the Octane, and IRIX 7.0 (with full USB support).

Sounds like that tape-head cleaner you've been sniffing is the good stuff! Can I have some too? :D

But does it come with a flameproof box to return it in case it turns out to be a fire hazard? :mrgreen:

Funny, I have actually thought about what an SGI phone (SGiPhone? :mrgreen:) would look like. Depends what model you're basing it on. Indigo2 with plastic grooves running around the edges of the device would be cool.

Nice, just so long as it makes a cool jingle when you turn it on :)

And MIPS powered, obviously...

We can say MIPS, but in reality it would probably have to be ARM with a cloud service that connects you to an Origin or something so that you can run IRIX apps on it.
