Would the ability to run a full version of Windows be enough for you to abandon your current phone?

    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.

    Why is the dude in the video just pressing enter the whole time? Is that just a powerpoint slideshow of what the thing looks like?

    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.

    Why call it a phone if you can't call people?

    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

    Amazing, so far no "crysis" remark. Hey, don't "thumb down" me!
    Also amazing gadget.

    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.

    mrddr6Does it have any kind of GPU?


    Of course it does silly, or else you wouldn't see anything on it :]

    Maybe you are asking if it has a descent GPU?
