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

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