More Toys

Next toy, the Sony UX50 PDA. Flip screen, wifi, bluetooth, keyboard, Palm OS, what's not to like besides the price. This one of course is going to be extremely English user friendly, compare to the Linux driven Sharp Zaurus c760. The Zaurus has a beautiful 480x680 color screen.

Read the developer interview on the Clie site. The (good) design obsession I think is summed up in this quote:
"After creating our first test model, we tried removing the stylus and the whole unit lost balance, tilting to one side. Since there was absolutely no space left to add weight and achieve balance, we had to remold the bottom to reposition the feet. We can laugh at this episode now that it's behind us, but at the time our enginerrs were in tears."
