Will we finally see an Apple ultra-portable PC in 2008?

Hmm, did James have some insider information on an Apple handheld computer or was he just being a good psychic? There have been rumors and dreams of an Apple ultra portable computer for years. I still have my Newton MessagePad 2100 and think my iPhone fills many of the roles I wanted in an Apple mobile device. According to the Apple Insider we may actually see this device come out in 2008. While this may just turn out to be another rumor that doesn't come about, with the iPhone and iPod Touch showing that multi-touch works well and more and more ultra-portable PCs hitting the market it may be a ripe time for Apple to lead the way into ultra mobility.

Fujitsui U810 ultra-portable PC now available

I have been enjoying the mobile office functionality of the HTC Advantage (see my review) and am always on the lookout for other powerful mobile devices that can help me work where I want to be. One of the devices I have been keeping my eye on is the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 that looks a bit like a big brother to my old Sony CLIE UX 50. I just read on jkOnTheRun that the Fujitsu U810 is now up on the Fujitsu website and available for US$999 or US$1099. The only difference between the two is the version of Vista (Home vs. Business) and the inclusion of Microsoft Works or Office. Compared to other devices in this ultra-portable PC category these sound like very good prices and definitely have me interested.
