PsiXpda pocket computer

I want it

But with a better battery. What I've wanted from my phone for some time now (and this does voice calls from the sound of it) is a Windows (real, not CE) device that I can, when required, do real work on.

I don't mind charging it each night. But it has to last a day.

That is what VM boxes are for. No worries with browser history as the box can go bye bye in a second.

As an Opera user I'm not.

If they follow the standards (and to make it work on both IE, FF and Safari then it is very likely they have) then it will work in Opera (and Chrome) regardless.

re: watch a flash embedded video

Do you lot use a different Atom processor than me? I have a MSI Wind and it works really rather well. Sure modern games are out of the question but it places iPlayer and (SD) videos fine, even with a Eclipse and an ant build going off in the background.

The GC is a pile of turd, but the CPU is fine and dandy.

@Jessica Werkz

What was the last Windows Mobile device you used? The last two phones I have had - both Windows Mobile (5 + 6.1) have been stable.

> Does having to use a stylus piss you off?

No. I like using a style. :shrug: Not that I have to for basic usage. Does having to use a on-screen keyboard piss you off? :P

> software availability for the win mobile was woeful

I'm not so sure. I have a Advent 4211 (MSI Wind) and the only real issue with it is the trash graphics card. And thats fine if you don't play games. Yes "little laptop" and "netbook" have merged, but were they really any different to begin with?

Yes! It's the USB Toaster!

If I'm using my computer for some time...

If I'm using my computer for some time I have access to a plug socket.

A none-USB toaster can you one of them. I know as my toaster sits next to my computer.

I read a big chunk of this debate on Game Politics a day or so ago, so went looking for it on BBC iPlayer and could not found it. Does anyone know if I just missed it, and if so would you be as kind as to post a link?

Tolets seats at work are already made of this.

As if the flush button.

Joost gets $45m to play with

mike lee

Does it work for you?

I've tried Joost a few times over the past few months, and never had it work. I'd get an advert for Joost fine, show the intro, stutter then display "sorry this channel is no longer working" .
