Another one bites the dust ... ohmy.gif ... you'll be missed ... though, do come around ya? wink.gif
I presume you are lovin the u1010? wink.gif ... I'm going the eeepc route ... and once everything transition over ... the zaurus days are numbered.

PS: Only thing preventing the eeepc from fully taking over the zaurus, is a proper timer app so that I can also use the eeepc as a timer / alarm. As it is, the zaurus is one notch lower than the palm pda I had. It had the BigClock app which to date, is THE BEST timer / alarm / clock app I've ever used.

i don't think so, at least for now smile.gif
but who knows, in 3 - 4 years, perhaps there will be a device between the Z and the U1010, as pocketable as the zaurus and as powerfull as the u1010......perhaps it will be a MID.....

actually screen size is an issue, if you want a pocketable device with a 1024x600 touchscreen, a hdd and a keyboard... look here for a comparison :

http://www.umpcportal.com/products/compare...6,152,184%5D%5D

there are even devices like the Aigo or the BenQ with a 4"8 1024x600! so .................

Surely the most important aspect of all in the specs is instant-on? A pocket device with a significant boot time is just a pain. And this rules out all current UMPCs as far as I'm concerned. Zaurus is only option to include a decent keyboard as far as I know.

well there are 2 other available options too :
-sleep mode (quite instant on but consume some battery)
-hibernate mode (longer to light up but quite no battery consumption)

but you're right , this is an issue too...

about keyboards, i find the fujitsu one is less usable than the zaurus but once you're used to it you enjoy it too tongue.gif

I also thought so about 2 months ago and now I find myself visiting these forums at least 2 or 3 times a week ...
So let's say "au revoir".
I still didn't get a good offer on my c1000 and I'm getting quite used to the idea of keeping it, after all, it is pocketable.
With the U dualbooting linux and xp, I don't use the Z that much any longer but still can't imagine life without it.

Have fun,
Chero.
