looks like some nice features, 128MB of ram, wifi bluetooth, CF SD video out and a 2700G coupled to an intel pxa270 @ 416Mhz

i know i am getting one, its intresting that they say that it wont support bluetooth file trasfers, i hope they are not reinventing the wheel instead of using the bluez stuff.

i will include some links in case the sites have the wrong info

asus eeepc
http://www.hothardware.com/Articles/Hands_...h_the_ASUS_Eee/
and for palm, just thier main site

bluetooth is one win for me, while wifi is avalible its not always open and most of the time there isnt a local coffe shop. i pay for a HSDPA account to get around that and i dont want to have to lug around another usb cable (that said i probelly have one handy for charging the phone). i have had bad experiences with $1000AUD + phones and usb cables connected to a laptop (slipping off and hitting the floor)

non x86 processors (esp ARM) have really really good instant on, acpi is nice but i have never seen it come up as fast as my Z or other arm devices, power is an issue. the eepc from what i have heard is a 3 hour machine. i really need 4+ hours most days

i will make an assumption here but i believe its safe, i am betting the foleo charges off of 5v, this means my 6AH battery packs will work on the device, i really wish they did with kohjinsha as it means i could go a week between recharges (needs about 15v minimum) however the eeepc could be different as thier are no moving parts (mechanicals are normally the thing that uses the 12v lines these days)

and lastly i prefer touch screens to keypads, just personal prefrence as thier are few occasions where i have to use both at the same time (only reason i touch the mouse these days is for fierfox, i have keyboard bindings for window managment using gonme and i do use wmii when i remeber to install it)

for me its the little things and trying to intergrate it with everything else i own. i would probelly be happy with the eeepc but its very simmilar to my kohjinsha already. however a speed bump would be nice
