So what’s going on with the UMPC battery life these days? Nice to see the blogosphere working together on this.
Speaking of battery life: can you really get 16 hours of battery life on the new HP tc4400 Tablet PC?

  1. Hey guys:

    The 25th in NYC would be great! I’m assuming we’re talking late afternoon/early evening? Why not just go to a Starbucks or something….keep it simple.

    Would you gents be taking the train into Penn Station? If so, we should find a place in and around that area. This way we’ll have more time to test EVDO signal strengths. ;)

    Looking forward to it!

  2. The X-Press IT! application sounds like a very heavy duty version of something I purchased back in 2002 called “TextAloud MP3″ ( I use it mostly to read tech papers or news articles to mp3 for later playback on my Pocket PC. It uses AT&T Natural voices. Pronounciation always seems to be poor, but overall playback speed and pitch can be adjusted. Also, individual words can be added so that proprietory words are correctly pronounced.
