looks very nice, and not massively expensive; it'd be nice if the TV tuner module could be swapped for a DVB-T module so it'd work here in the UK!

I note that the vye website pdf on it has an image stolen from Akihabaranews - see the green space pig in the background?

btw, is it just me, or is there a wave of zaurus sellers? I sense that this is in anticipation of or a response to the whole series of kohjinsha and sub-lite notebook that is going for cheap.

One thing I do on my zaurus akita that I don't do on my kohjinsha is to write my diary or journal before I sleep at night; sure the korigami is very small and light for a tabletpc or notebook, but still a bundle to hold and prop up while typing in bed. With my Z, I can thumb away laying in bed and it's quite ok.

How are you guys using your Kohjinsha?

I invested in a Kohjinsha SH6 just before the announcement of the SH8 but have been extremely impressed. Couldnt wait to get rid of the Vista, and now running Fedora 7 which was an easy install even to get the integral wireless working with the rt73 serialmonkey driver, and touchscreen with the PenMount 6000 Driver.

Still use Zaurus with PdaxII13 but use Notecase on both Zaurus and the Kohjinsha for capturing meeting notes. The Kohjinsha has effectively replaced my work laptop as far easier to lug around for presentations, but the Zaurus remains an invaluable work tool for on the fly notes in confined spaces such as trains etc. It is an excellent combination of mobile tools especially as no Windows needed.

The only gripe is the battery life, should have gone for the high capacity battery. Seriously considering replacing the internal hard disk with a more power friendly option as did not go for the SSD version. Have already had the Kohjinsha completely apart as accidently triggured the BIOS password like a total idiot, and had to remove the battery on the Motherboard to reset the BIOS. Luckily there are a few good articles on the web that give advice on this nerve racking experience. Not sure what the best option would be for the disk replacement at this stage, but getting access to the drive is not that difficult

you do know, dontcha, that if you can get a free downgrade to XP pro from Vista business? install XP (need some random installation disk), then ring up MS's activation hotline when it want's to validate, quote the product key for vista you have and they'll give you the activation code.

we just bought some laptops at work with Vista, and I'll be downgrading them before they get used.

I'm just curious if the SH8 keyboard would fit and work on my SA1.
It has two shift keys (really needed) and the F1-F12 keys are all straight across the top.
Plus they say the SH8 keyboard is much improved from the original one.
If I thought I could get it to work, I might try and order just the keyboard.

I don't believe they're compatible, unfortunately - else many of us SA1 users would have jumped at the opportunity :-)

I hear the SH6/SH8 keyboard is the same model as the one on the Asus EEE PC though.
