New Samsung Uber-PDA

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014

So far it's Europe only, but it's bound for the US eventually too. Sweet looking.

It runs Windows CE .NET but at least there is plenty of software available.

    It is easy to criticize, but that is getting to be the form-factor I've been looking for....the size of a paperback novel and small, but useful keyboard and navigation wheel.

    I wonder if the keyboard will scratch the screen.

    Apple could make it better, but that (with handwriting recgonition, etc.) for $500 is a good business pda / mini tablet solution.

    Yes this is the current problem with PDA's: they are oriented wrong.

    A sideways PDA with a keyboard, like Symbian PDAs, is the best in my opinion.

    Nah. Just get a PowerBook 100 if you need something portable without full features minus the shyty OS

    The keys just seem awful, too bad 'cause that's getting close to the ideal form factor with that size, even a touch bigger. However, even at the current size they could do a lot bettter with the keys by using a psion style layout and paring it down to only the most essential keys, letters and numbers only, no function/ctrl/alt keys, just shift and return and cursors. With good (as in days long) battery life and a good quality voice recorder that'd be the ideal note taking device.

    Hells yea. I'm waiting for a PDA that's $99 but still does all the cool multimedia stuff. Or the Apple PDA of course. Why don't they make one! It would make everything else out there look pathetic.
