I think there is a grey area where a device is too small to be comfortably used like a laptop and too big to be conveniently portable, and this thing looks like it fits right into that zone. It’s way too big to fit in a pocket and if I’m going to carry something around in a bag, it might as well be a laptop with a bigger screen, more functionality and a better keyboard. That’s probably wh cheap ugg boots y UMPCs haven’t quite taken off. I also don’t like that a lot of the potential screen real estate is being wasted (I’m refering to the large hole in cheap ugg boots the bottom and the old school non backlit LCD display). I’d imagine this thing is about the same size as a 11″ laptop and the only advantage it seems to have is better battery life.
