    And a 20Gb hard drive. :shock: That'd make a great mobile movie player.

    Yeah, I found that out after browsing the site.

    This looks delicious. $800 isn't too expensive but I'd need to play with one (and I have no idea how or where in Malaysia!) before I persuade my wife how cool this thing is!

    Spicy!

    You really can't accomodate a widescreen if you want to integrate a keyboard, as well. 4:3 seems ideal for a portable player, as you get the added screen area for the vast majority of TV broadcasts, and probably the max width for the form-factor for DVDs (so you're not really losing anything to a primarily widescreen display). Besides, how much wider does it get than 8.4" for a portable player?

    I looked at the thread title, then I looked at the poster. Then, while it loaded, I changed my pants. Then I cried.

    Why'd you make me cry, Kristof?! WHY!

    How bout putting one into something like OQO instead. The OQO does everything that pad does, plus is a real PC (runs Windows XP on Intel 1Ghz Pentium, no XScale), smaller and half the weight, better keyboard, docking station, I/O port (1394, USB2, etc). The OQO will be more expensive, about the price of a real notebook computer, because it is as powerful as a real notebook computer, but fits in the palm of a hand.

    Of course, you won't be able to actually type anything with keys that small, but it will impress people when you ostentatiously use it in public... ;)

    That OQO is a very nice device! If I had money to burn, I'd get me one ASAP :cry:

    Sorry, but OQO runs on a 1GHz Transmeta chip (the Efficeon, I believe), not pentium... In fact, I believe the dude behind the OQO company is one of the guys who started up Transmeta.

    The OQO is dead sexxay btw, I just wish it had more RAM, USB2 and a better graphics chip. It could have used a longer battery life too. :p But, it IS dead sexxay. ;)
