Dell's convertible Latitude XT3 tablet has some neat features and a good choice of configurations. However, it lacks USB 3.0 and an optical drive, battery life is disappointing and it's relatively heavy for a 13.3in. notebook. As a result, we'd hesitate to recommend it for everyday use.

Kevin, James and myself are happy to have reached the century milestone with MobileTechRoundup show #100 that was recorded while I was again on the road. We had lots to talk about on this show and chatted a bit about what mobile phones I took on the road, how James is liking the T-Mobile Dash keyboard, and what we think about the Windows Mobile Smartphone versus the Phone Edition models. Dell is coming out with their own Tablet PC and we are excited about the size and looks of the device. I checked out the HTC Vox, but didn't go ahead with the purchase this time. Fujitsu is showing off a cool new UMPC convertible that reminds us of the Sony Clie or Sharp Zaurus devices. Thanks to all the listeners for following the gang through 100 shows. Stay tuned for another 100.
