Default Samsung NEXiO S160: Sexy!

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div>The HPC Lives! Sort of. 8O This is a sweet looking device! The specs are below, but this animated GIF speaks for itself...and I think the Pocket PC OEMs could learn a few things from what Samsung has done here.<br /><br /><img src="" /><br /><br /> 5" Wide Transflective Color LCD<br /> 800 X 480 WVGA TFT (64K Colors)<br /> Intel PXA250 400MHz<br /> Microsoft Windows CE .NET (4.1)<br /> 128MB DRAM / 64 Flash ROM<br /> Lithium Polymer Battery (1500mAh)<br /> CFII Slot, Sync, Connector &amp; VGA out Port<br /><br />Price-wise, it's HK$ 7,180.0 which is about $934 US dollars. A little expensive, but not too bad consider the technology in this thing.

Default Very Nice...

I have to say that it looks very nice. I would trade some compactness for that screen size and resolution... I seem to carry my current PDA in a bag anyways.

Question is... is there a hope that it is (will be) available in the States?

Samsung's site is here (includes dimensional specs):

Kinda funny that weight-wise it's on par with my old Jornada 548!

Droooooooooooooooooool D'Oh!

Thanks a lot Jason for risking ruining my second MS Natural Keyboard in a month. The first fell victim to coffee and this one was almost killed by saliva!

This thing is sweet! Heck, I just want the screen! 5" of screen real estate to use transcriber on would be wonderfully luxurious. But the cost plus the niche status if WinCE versus the popularity of the Pocket PC "OS" gives me pause.

Why oh why can't we get the crispy resolution of the Sony N-series screen with on the fly portrait to landscape switching? The rumors are that floating around about the next version of Pocket PC are promising but the resolution is still the same. (No, I'm not opening that debate again.)

Here we all are pushing for PPC 2003, 640x480 screens, heavier versions of Word and Excel....and Pocket PC is continually being blown out of the water with hardware innovations. This is why I have been saying forget that stuff, it will all happen. BUT hardware??? We are all still holding the same basic hardware we were when the HP 540 and it's friends hit the market........Come on OEMs get off your butts and SHOW ME THE HARDWARE

That price is a killer.

Way too high for a portable.

This is a reason why it's so easy to say that HPC/WinCE devices don't do well.

They cost twice as much as their PPC brothers do.

...........But i still want this device.

Default That is incredibly sexy

i would really like one of these.... the only thing would be throw in some built in wifi for that cost. This is a sweet looking device that is finally pushing the limits pass the ipaq of 2000 which is basically the same with a few updates.
