Isn't that the device created by a group of former Apple employees?

It looks kinda neat, but it seems to be to be a glorified pda, more than anything else.

i could use a PDA too.
Steve said in an interview a few weeks ago that they have a finished PDA at Apple-but that they won`t sell it.

PDAs aren't really a worthwhile market anymore. Just look how great Palm is doing

The PDA market is doing well in the enterprise, where Microsoft is strong, but Apple probably doesn't have enough presence there to have an impact. The consumer PDA market is languishing.

The OQO product looks pretty cool, I've seen it before though. It's developed by former Apple and IBM engineers.

But we wouldn't rip DVD's we don't own, now would we?

Could you run Linux on that thing?

reminds me of the Duo Dock hooking into a big screen and keyboard.

Course using a woman to show it with small hands makes it look more usuable!

Eventually there will be an Apple product like this. It will have a G7 processor at 6Ghz.

I don't understand the need. I have a Palm I never use, but that's just me.

Nor has it been updated? No micro drives, 802.11g, FW 800, nor any number of new tech.

exactly.

what happens when it comes out? does it take another 2 years to make another new one because all the hardware is old?

My PB fits in my purse. I was a bit embarrassed when I saw a man carrying the same purse and it looked better with his outfit, but I bet he didn't have a PowerBook in his

At that point in time I might be interested.

Was it the gay pride rainbow that gave it away? You can never really tell with these Oqos who like have sexual relations with other Oqos of the same gender.
