Wow!  That was hard to watch.  I wanted so bad to Geraldo Rivera him to knock sense back into him.    

I have to agree with him on one thing the keyboard looks terrible.

Any keyboard that small is going to have some compromises in the layout/design.

That's one part of the price you pay to have a pocketable computer.....along with a small display.

After my Zaurus SL-C1000 and the Fujitsu U810 it's positively spacious. I don't know what everyone is whinging about!

In my experience, I not seen anyone produce *good* content - code or docs - as fast as they can type, anyway,
