HP Compaq 2710p

The HP Compaq 2710p stands out by virtue of its stylish design. It's not the lightest ultraportable, though, and many mobile professionals will want to specify the 3G option. The lack of an optical drive and a touchpad may also bother some potential buyers.

T-Mobile Wing replaces the T-Mobile MDA

T-Mobile announced the release of a Windows Mobile 6 Professional (aka Pocket PC Phone Edition) device called the T-Mobile Wing. This device was revealed just a couple of weeks ago by the FCC and it didn't take long for T-Mobile to get it out. The press release and device specifics haven't even been posted on T-Mobile's site yet, but a couple of fellow mobile enthusiasts have full reviews that you should check out for more information. Mobility Site and Mobile Tech Review take the Wing for a spin and for the most part are pleased with the device. It lacks 3G since T-Mobile is the only major U.S. carrier without this service so that is one area of concern. It does have WiFi and Bluetooth, but also uses the 200 MHz processor like that used in the current T-Mobile MDA. This is fine for Smartphones, but a Professional device really should have 300 MHz or more under the hood. That said, I have some gadget cash saved up and may be adding the T-Mobile Wing to my collection soon.

Will terror push us into the coud?

A couple of days ago, I wrote about the "need" for a Web OS and opined that replication of what already works is not likely to influence the vast majority of PC users to the cloud. Hearing that travelers in the UK were no longer being allowed to carry laptops onto the plane got me thinking about the long-term implications of terrorism and increasingly stringent travel rules on mobility and portable technologies.

Build a low-power x86 appliance for under $200!

Not so long ago, pre-built appliances were relatively expensive and very low performance. Small footprint Cases and Motherboards actually cost more than full size tower PCs. Commodity full size desktop PC parts were fast and cheap, but they used too much power and generated too much heat. That's all recently changed with the inexpensive Via C3 motherboards with integrated 800 MHz CPU, Video, LAN, and Sound costing well below $70. To help you build your own sub-200 dollar appliance, here are three appliance packages I've put together for you

Sony Ericsson GC79

The GC79 delivers good ease of use and solid performance over both Wi-Fi and mobile phone networks. Sadly, some of its more exotic features, such as EAP-SIM and fast GPRS can’t be utilised until the cellular infrastructure is upgraded.
