Here's a video of the prototype running a slideshow, compared to a Nintendo DS Lite:

Is anyone following the Pandora scene? I'm curious, do they plan on a better keyboard or if they've finally given in and added a second set of shoulder buttons in the final model? How's the software side coming along?

I agree that the design is weird : the case is too massive, and the keyboard and joypad mix is surprising... But actually it is more surprising than really ugly.

The keyboard is put at the bottom of the device, and therefore it will probably be difficult to use it intensively without putting the device on a table, however, when put on a table, it should not be a problem -- in particular if the keyboard has the same quality as the zaurus one.

Latest images (http://openpandora.org/pandoranewkeys.png) show that there is space added between the keys -- good point !

My conclusion : I think it worth at least a try...

I'm definitely watching pandora, though I'm not sure what connection options it has

Actually, bluetooth is going to be included. Apparently they got a very good deal on the radios..
