Also, if you're the sort of person that takes The Register seriously,
devices like this are the next big thing that will be sponsored by
Microsoft. It seems Gates has decided we're at the point where devices
similar to a skinny, lightweight laptop with no keyboard and a display as
part of the surface can be mass produced & marketed. Apparently, Microsoft
reps had prototypes [from Gateway? I forget...] on display at recent trade
shows, and the company wants to push them as a successor to desktops,
laptops, and handheld devices. That & it's another place to sell wince...
Meh, I'll just keep my Palm Pilot for now, thanks.
