One word: Overkill

Things like cellphones should be made simpler and easy to use.
I'm sorry but an entire Windows XP OS on a cell phone that's the size of a brick?

Just call it a Ultra Portable Laptop with a built-in phone.

Still no clue what "Super mobile CPU" is supposed to mean. And a phone that weighs nearly half a kilogram? That's four times heavier than my Nokia brick.

VGA output for monitor and projektor. Yummi :) .

Imagine using this little thing as your media center both in your home and your friends place.

Thats what it would need to do for me to be interested.

Too big of a phone, heck, it may not have the dialing option because it uses XP which was not made for phones.

A) this thing is kind of big for a lot of people (girls primarily) b) windows xp is nothing but frustrating with a nice easy to use gui running o\/er it. c)nokia n900

ha\/ing said that, it is still interesting and does ha\/e appeal... especially the possibility of running some older windoze games, eg: diablo 1

Its one step closer having fully functional portable PCs. Pretty soon the guts of the machine will be just a box you keep on your hip or in your pocket and use wireless peripherals with.

I know I don't like cell phones cause of how small most of them are and especially cause of how small the buttons are.

Hell, that thing is gigantic compared to all other cell phones I've seen and the buttons at least look manageable for my really big hands.

But I really don't see the need for texting and in most cases, I don't see the need to use a phone when away from the home unless it's an emergency or unless you need something. Most phone calls can wait.

But then again, these days most people seem to be glued to their phones where ever they go including when they are driving.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to big. Too slow.

Android does great. XP is way to big and bloated of an OS for a cell phone and pretty soon, XP won't be available for purchase.

Give it a few years, we'll have the fast phones with projectors built in - for the large screen needs.

first off, the whole crysis thing is annoying. please stop all failure to humanity.

Looks very cool, but can you image what would happen if malware gets on it? Also what about viruses. it would be a very bad idea if someone bought something with a credit card over the phone not using the windows portion and the virus catches the credit card number, expiration dates, and security code. That'd totally suck. But once again, pretty interesting.

the phone did not have a stylus, squeezing the windows xp UI into something that size then using a finder to work the touch screen will be a nightmare.

china is always good at trying to 1 up everyone else.
but they sometimes overlook problems like this.

also do you really want a phone running windows xp, especially with a low powered CPU?

just what every phone needs, slow startup speeds and support for windows apps so you will end up with idiots installing every programs and also every bit of malware the world has to offer then complain that their phone isn't working or keeps crashing

or if something like this becomes popular, you will have botnets of cellphone randomly calling people and advertising crap

or even better yet, malware that is able to rip sim card data, theres already some available for the iphone (been floating around a couple forums)

with the rate at which the average user gets windows infected, criminals will start going crazy with making malware that copies sim card data, in which can be used for free automatic dialing of random phone numbers to do some telemarketing

How about this, stop "inventing" rehashed ideas over and over and over...

Instead smaller companies should invest in battery R&D. With that, we could truly get a small, relatively powerful pocket pc. I'd love an pocket sized xp rig with decent memory, gpu, running around 2+ ghz. Imagine running REAL apps, games, streaming content on something this size (and then laughing at everyone using a netbook...)

The phone w/ real OS idea is just terrible. Its been said already, but there would be too many issues when all you want to do is make a call ("sorry, my phone just got a BSOD").
