The Netslate was a BE thesis project built up over a number of years to build what is now commonly known as a tablet (i.e. iPad). The first year was by Ben Williamson who built the initial hardware and initial hardware verification software. In the second year, I expanded the hardware and ported the Inferno Network Operating System such that it could run real applications such as a web browser. The following year Michael Goddard continued on adding an RF modem.
