Default Pocket PC Phone from Legend

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://akiba.sorobangeeks.com/news_2307.html' target='_blank'>http://akiba.sorobangeeks.com/news_2307.html</a><br /><br /></div>OK, I want one of these. Check out how compact it is... and it has a removable dialpad!<br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/parekh/news/20030421-Legend-PPCPE.jpg" /><br /><br />According to the above link from Soroban Geeks (:google: translation from French to English <a href="http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fakiba.sorobangeeks.com%2Fnews_2307.html&langpair=fr%7Cen&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&prev=%2Flanguage_tools">here</a>), it will have 64MB of RAM, 32MB of ROM, and a 3.5" screen. As to what standard it will have, it's not clear; since China has both CDMA and GSM standards, it's possible that there will be models for each. Of course, we're probably not likely to see it here in the US, but I've already <a href="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=6715">ranted on that</a>.

NICE!
Me Likey.
Is there a D-Pad hidden anywhere?
:?:

Sorry, just saw the site. There isn't. It would seem fairly little additional size to add one similar to the Ipaq 5xxx series..... (No bie security, granted).

Look at the second picture on the website -- I don't think so -- although it looks like it has a jog-dial on the left side of the phone.

Ahh, the virtual keypad...
...arguably one of SonyEricsson's most innovative features on the P800.
Would it be very hard for a third-party manufacturer to make one for an existing Pocket PC Phone? This is a great way to use a PPCPE like a regular phone without getting the fingerprints on the screen.
It would be a neat feature for the virtual keypad to also act as a full-sized screen protector when not in use as well.

Possibly the scroll wheel is similar to one of the more advanced Sony versions which can move forward, back and in as well as scroll... Here's hoping.

As regards the size. If they can keep control over the thickness this would be a VERY nice device.

Obviously it would also need Bluetooth, be based on PocketPC 2003 Phone edition, and run a 400MHz XScale 255 with full speed bus...

Funny how no one has commented on the lack of *any* (far as I can see) hard buttons for apps. The XDA got creamed by many folks for having *only 2* hard app buttons (and some interesting software was developed as a workaround as a result).
