    Hi

    Im looking for someone who could design a "laptop" the size of an iPhone.

    Specs are as follows:

    - Quad core procesor

    - 4 gb ram

    - touch screen / windows XP

    - regular other features of iPhone

    I don't mind spending a couple of thousand dollars on this..

    Is it even possible?

    Possible? Probably. Cheap? Don't think so. Worth it? Don't think so. Useful? Rather not. Battery would probably die before it would turn on. Then again it depends on what you really need this for.

    Size of an iPhone?

    A 4.3 inch screen would be a minimum in my opinion to make it somewhat useful. Then again with an Internet connection you can run practically any OS on Android via remote desktop.

    size of an iphone?! no this is not possible unless you the nvidia tegra 3 which is a mobile phone processor. You can not fit a desktop or "laptop" processor in something the size of an iphone.

    Why? you ask! For the simple reason there is no mainboard / motherboard small enough that is of that socket type to fit the processor.

    Seriously LOL have you even seen the size of a laptop processor it is almost as wide as the iphone screen. The ram for laptop is also as large as the phone etc etc. You have to wait till the processors and everything is really small around 28nm like snapdragon cortex A9 or tegra 3 mobile phone processors. Then it will just be mobile phone processor.

    This will defeat the whole purpose it will not be a laptop also sourcing the parts and creating such a thing will be too expensive for you to afford / design / manufacture. This is just some daft idea.

    Could be done with a *Nix variant or similar. Not with XP running native though, you'd have driver issues in that form factor. Sounds like you need a good VM with RDP or something.

    Excellent option if Windows CE works for him. Although, I don't think it's iPhone sized by any means.

    I personally think that thing is pretty awesome however.
