    Would be better if the lid/screen could do a 180 and be used like a regular phone.

    If you're going to carry two devices, which means one of them has to go in a bag, then why not make the 2nd one a real laptop or a tablet?

    I preordered as soon as I saw it. Now I can take my smaller phone on trips as the wifi dongle, and use this for email. Also, dual boot is supported. Annoyed their only "case option" is actual.fucking.leather...

    Brings back happy memories of my Psion 5 - which is up in the loft somewhere. It was finally superseded by a Sony Clie

    Used to get it fixed by a bloke in a garden shed in Streatham who ran a company called Pinnock Organiser Services (POS) that seems to have finally gone into administration in 2014

    I like the look of this more than the current smartphones. Hope it works.

    The Sony Clies were ace. Really great devices.

    Just need a dead dead basic phone with epic battery life, which can also work as a WiFi hot-spot and you'd have the perfect setup.

    I've still got one lying in the bottom of a drawer.
