the coming of the mobile computer

I for one have always been the guy who hates PDAs and laptops. Have never been able to use PocketPC or Palm PDAs well and hate lugging that laptop everywhere. Its time for a new device. Something that is large enough that you can take it into a meeting and type without seeming rude, something that can fit into the jacket pocket or else at least be light to carry around like a diary. Something that can run skype. connect to wifi, interoperate with bluetooth headsets. Something with enough hard disk space that i can lose the laptop.

Saw the oqo yesterday. was very impressed. A step in the right direction. Would I buy? Not yet. There's a lot more that can happen here. My prediction: give it a year.
