I don't think that this is in the same category as a Zaurus (for me, at least). It's too large to fit in a pocket. It does look pretty nice, however.

Looks interesting but, it is not a Zaurus replacement for me. It's too big for me and I'll bet the battery life bites. I tried replacing my Psion 3a with a Libretto 50ct a few years back. That was a disaster. You never know how important instant on and a long battery life is until you don't have it. biggrin.gif

Amen. Technology shouldn't slow us down.
That's why I love the old Tandy Model 10X's!

Eeh.

My TRS-80 CoCo was instant-on too.
(it might take 5-10 minutes to load things up from tape, mind you...)

I go back and forth on these mini laptops. It is definitely cool. It definitely won't fit in my pocket, but will take up little, or no, more space in my bag than my z + accessories. Maybe this +smartphone is a solution? But then laptop +smartphone has been the typical approach in the US.

What it boils down to is whether to compare this to a zaurus or a larger small laptop. Pricewise (it said something like starting at $750) it is more reasonable than other big small devices, and only mrginally higher than a basic laptop.

Today, I like my Z and wouldn't trade it for something not pocketable. tomorrow maybe I'll want a standard x86 distro and leave the embedded porting issues behind...

Umm. The traditional definition of Instant on refers to a feature where the device basically remembers the previous state when the unit is turned back on. It does this by keeping the processor, real time clock and memory powered while the rest of the unit is powered down. The CoCo did not have instant on capabilities which is why you needed to load programs when you turned it back on. The Tandy Model 10X's had a more limited Instant on functionality then listed above but it did have the feature.

Looks like one of the UMPC's that have a lot of promise, but not too sure of the form factor - I've gotten so used to the size of my C3100.

"4.9 x 3.4 x 1.0 inches (124 x 87 x 25mm). Weight: 10.5 ounces (298 grams)", i.e. 3200 is quarter of the area (same thickness) slightly less than third of the weight.

I saw that too. very sexy. seems to be wimax only, no wifi, and I can't tell if EV-DO means it's got 3G/W-CDMA functionality or not.

It has cf, so I can re-use my great amount of zaurus-cf accessories: bluetooth, wifi, gprs, eternet, modem.
