hello zaurus users,

this is probably one of my last visit to the oesf forum... i've finally sold my zaurus C3000 (bought in january 2005!) and i bought a fujitsu u1010...

good bye to all people here and thank you for your help !

so keep up the good work, you know you have the best (pocketable!) device ever wink.gif

Hope you don't regret selling your Z like I did....


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.

Exactly! smile.gif

I concur completely! If I were one of those research think tank fellas or OS dev guys, instanton would be the number one thing to develop ... not fancy aero skin, 3d desktop ... tongue.gif

Granted, instanton prob requires hw/fw/sw to work in unison. smile.gif

UMPC makers, give us instanton already! blink.gif



Thanks for support - even size is less important to me than instant on, and sometimes even a Psion netBook seems attractive. Although the difference in thickness between a C860 with small battery and a 3100 makes all the difference to my pocket comfort!
Mark


well ... I almost gave up and started using a psion revo! laugh.gif ... for that matter, if the zaurus was not instanton as it is, no linux or web browser would make me continue using it.

the netbook, at least the highest spec models, did seem very attractive, but they were hugely expensive - when I considered one a few years ago they were going for very high prices on ebay.


aye ... I also considered netbook for awhile, but the price was simply too prohibitive. The eeepc definitely fit in nicely where the netbook could have had but could not.

For some reason, I am still trying to get the apps in my eeepc to be as effective as my zaurus ... and perhaps my notebook. Still trying ... ... when that happens ... my zaurus would likely be decommissioned as well. unsure.gif

as always, it depends on what you're looking for smile.gif
the eeepc, unlike the zaurus (and the fujitsu!) doesn't have a rotating touchscreen for example...
