MoTR rant on the Sirius S50. Great concept but terrible implementation with the new restrictions.
Can Nokia meet the demand for the 770 Internet Tablet? Will folks get them before the end of the year? Like the Xbox 360, there are some 770′s on eBay.
Acer has their new n300 Windows Mobile device, but what is the “Wow” factor? What WinMobile feature makes you go “Wow!”?
LG’s new Windows Mobile device has GPS and a TV tuner. You can be “Lost” and watch “Lost” at the same time!

  3. In regards to the Acer n300 pocket pc, do you not feel that it’s low weight is a very interesting factor? From my perspective, I see the n300 as a VGA PPC which has about the same weight as a Nokia n70 mobile phone (130g vs 126g respectively).
    Do you feel that the weight of the n300 is not worthy of the title “wow”?

    Also, I have a question for you: I’ve recently been holding out for the Nokia N80 mobile phone. However, today I read from that its battery life will barely last a day. Frankly, a phone without power is worse than a dirty red brick in my pocket because at least the brick will still live up to its promises unlike the phone’s promise of connectivity.
    Therefore, my question. Is the convergence of your primary form of mobile connectivity (the mobile phone) with the battery intensive pda and multimedia capabilities a good idea? Does it make more sense to have the reliable your-battery-easily-lasts-a-week mobile phone and then use bluetooth to connect it to a fully spec’ed pda (for internet/email outside of wifi areas)? Or, is the extra drain on the phone battery by the bluetooth connection the killer blow to this 1, 2, combo?
    Also, I’d note that a bluetoothed phone could potentially just be left in an unused pocket all day if it’s set up right with a headset etc.
