And the only suggestion I've seen so far that stands a ghost of a chance.

C'mon! It's not all that much bigger than some of the "Zaurus Successor," suggestions I've seen lately. I'd rather have something I can drive, than try to drag around a 7 inch (insert acronym here) something or (UMPC) other stuffed in my 4 inch (at best) pocket. Probably has real good battery life also.

For the cons it says:

...bland appointments combine with a number of poorly designed and unintuitive entertainment and information systems.
Regarding the "appointments"... I wonder if they are using the SHARP PIM suite. They should really try out the GPE or Ko/Pi suite.
Regarding the "unintuitive entertainment"... maybe they should try getting pyCar working.

I don't want "please go to your point of sale for a full reset of the car" displayed on my dash-board each time I refuel the car ....
