    The Ultra-Mobile PC

    Microsoft and its hardware partners have come up with new mobile device called the "Ultra-Mobile PC". It runs full Windows XP and appears to be a mash-up of a Tablet PC and PDA in my opinion. The video on this site peaks my interest but I wonder how much they will cost.

    Yes, sounds interesting, but they won't be useful before the batteries have more capacity. The UMPCs shown at the CEBIT run about 3 hours on battery, which isn't very useful.
    They are said to cost about 600-1000 EUR, which is better than current tablet PCs.

    regards,

    Have you looked into the Nokia 770? http://europe.nokia.com/nokia/ I recieved my last week and have been doing some general sysad stuff (its a linux machine), but plan to get gpsdrive and some other mapping apps running as soon as I have some time.

    My guess is that Nokia is not advertising this very widely at the moment while the open source community which has grown around this device gets more applications compiled for it.

    So, if you haven't, check it out.
