'Powered by Chumby' Gadgets to Be Dropped Off In Time for Santa

We already knew that Chumby, maker of that adorable little Wi-Fi widget beanbag, was planning on porting its open-source platform to other gadgets, but we now have an ETA: this holiday season.

The company has told Forbes that "several 'powered by Chumby' gadgets" will launch in the coming months. They have struck partnerships with Sony, Samsung, Broadcom and others.

The first product to launch will be a digital photo frame and will be followed by TVs, Blu-Ray players, clocks and radios. Chumby, you really don't think Yahoo's platform is good enough, huh? [Forbes]
