MobileTechRoundup show #149, Netbook talk, WiMAX available, new phones in the house

Summary:While we were recording MobileTechRoundup show #149 Kevin was able to swap out internal parts on his MSI Wind and is trying out for the Netbook pit crew. We chatted about the long-awaited release of WiMAX in Baltimore, my Palm Treo Pro, the N96 devices that James and I are now evaluating, and the 16GB microSD memory card announcement. James has a Lenovo S60 netbook and all of this talk about them has me seriously thinking of the MSI Wind that should arrive soon for me to evaluate. We also had a couple freeware products that turn your phone into a trackpad or mouse.
