Well without UMTS several things in these promo video's just don't make sense. How can a guy walk up a hill take a pic and send it with his UMPC without having UMTS ? Or the lady in the shop using the messenger to chat with her friend about the dress ?
Well there is always a big gap between what marketing tells you and the reality
I'm looking forward to see the first through reviews to come online, however for the moment my gadget budget will rather be spent on den Sony eReader
Was an interesting video to watch, however it leaves still some questions open.
Do I have to boot this device or will it be instant on ?
How can I reinstall the whole machine if necessary without a CD drive ?
Will it have UMTS ?
Overall I'm pretty much disappointet in terms of the hardware that is used. We are going back to Celeron CPU's and will pay for the device a price that can buy a full laptop with a Centrino. The concept is really promissing, however at the moment these generation
one devices are from the hardware point of view a big step back.
It's funny to see that until origami MS and the hardware vendors made such a big fuzz about "get the latest hardware technology, much much better that before". And suddenly a 1 GHz Pentium M processor is a powerful CPU again. Suddenly such a CPU with 512 MB
RAM should be enought to run Windows Vista + Office 2007 ?
The reference to Photoshop was great, cause that's what I would love to do with such a device, carry always while making pics, and at home connect it to the 32" LCD and work on my pictures, not to boot another machine again
Fantastic video, finally MS brings a good front end for analysis server. I was already playing with Excel 12, however I will have now a look at the Sharepoint integration. Hopefully I can show now a complete migration path to an all MS BI Solution and
kick out the old Business Objects stuff.
The only thing I fear is that it might take again ages to convince the company to migrate their office to the latest version Anyway then it might be time to look for a more innovative company
