Chumby 2 Breaks Cover, Features Larger Display and Thinner Frame

If seeing a new Acer Aspire One notebook leak ahead of an unannounced launch isn't good enough for you, perhaps the second-generation Chumby is more to your liking. Especially when it looks like this, and nothing like the original. we can immediately tell from the image that the display is certainly larger than the previous model, and the frame itself makes the device look more like a digital photo frame. There's a large stand on the back, and reportedly speakers integrated into the sides.

Details are scarce at this point. But, an image is supposed to be worth 1,000 words, anyway. And, from what we can tell here in this image, we should expect to find a full-screen Web browser available for usage. There's no telling how widgets will play in this generation of Chumby device, but considering how pivotal they were in the previous iteration of the device, it's not likely that they'd drop support for them entirely. Chumby isn't an official exhibitor at CES 2011, but there's still a small chance that we get to see this device in some fashion or another at the show, so stay tuned.
