    Check this out!
    It has bluetooth wireless, phone, mp3, PDA.

    Has anyone else seen this.

    Their stock is over $200/share.

    Wow, hot stock.
    Too bad I didn't get in when they were, say, $1/share.
    Anyway, I've seen this link from time to time.
    No device yet (not in stores, anyway).
    I may have read a reviewer or 2 say they thought it was "too wide." (It looks 30 mm wider than a Palm or PPC, from the specs. Also 99 grams heavier.)
    I can't help but notice there are no real "scale indicators" (like having it in someone's hand, in close-up, or next to a penny or something) to really give you an idea of its dimensions....

    the dimentions are 127H x 103W x 22.5D (mm) or 5" x 4" x .9".

    The LCD is 4". The specs sheet is here:

    Yeesh, yes, I read the specs (else how would I have produced the ones I produced?).
    Still, nothing says it quite like: "Look at this gizmo next to a familiar standard-sized object (like a penny, or a Pepsi can, etc.)."

    Ok, a Pepsi can is 5" tall.
    A quarter is a bit less than 1" in diameter.
    An audio tape is a bit less than 4" (the long way).

    So, the pc-ephone is roughly a pepsi by a tape by a quarter in size.



    Sorry, the engineer in me instinctively thinks of rulers as being "familiar standard-sized objects".

    LOL, I need that king of comparising more often... those inches drive me nuts...
    When does the US finally switch over to Metric?? The rest of the world did (with a few exceptions..)

    Also I wonder why they didn't make it GSM compatible...
    Now they can only market it in the US...

    BION, in college I delivered a paper enumerating the many reasons the U.S. should have gone / should go metric ... but a key part of the argument is that "people don't care how much a 'gallon' or a 'liter' is -- as long as they can see the bottle it's packaged in."
    For better or worse, I think most people think more in terms of product standards than their actual measurements.
    Anyway, I get your point, of course.

    But it's *still* pretty handy to see a standard visual cue right in the same photo, eh?
