Will be too big to carry around. Un practical for daily usage. I would rather go for a good 3G compact phone and a compact laptop or capable UMPC.

the brand is HTC, the Shift UMPC is what it is currently being called. I think this is a very good blend between full flege laptop/pda/cellphone. This is definately on my wish list!

Nice, but 800x480 resolution is not good enough. Should have at least 1024x600.

I agree with most of people here: Battery life plays very important role actually most important role currently. I think windows mobile operating system is very good because it does almost everything as pc but it gives good battery life, other thing is what about GPS receiver? I assume it isn't there in it, If its the case then HTC is not better than OQO 02 which is a similar machine but with an integrated GPS receiver. Any comment on it guys? Thanks Email me at

Yes, powerful OS without powerful processor is useless (Kenny's comment correct) He just hides his main point in lots of text.

I think we do not need very powerful processor since battery life is more important (these days) than high performance - get a tablet if you need CPU power.

I think even with PDA processor the battery life is still too low:
I would like to see units with 4-5 hours.

Today, especially with the 5-7" screen you get a couple of hours if you lucky: you can not watch video, or use it as a GPS unit for any decent time.

By the way, When did we (customers) allow Microsoft to market (sell) buggy softwares for years for full price in a hope that in a couple of years they fix the bugs and it will be usable. The meanwhile they take the working OS out of the market so you can not get a decent unit (notebook) with all the drivers.
(Vista drivers - notebook: webcam, sound etc. may be different than XP) Sorry, I know this is not a PC forum.
