While the language is a bit fruity, it’s always nice to see the reaction of people coming across the PsiXpda for the first time. David Williams is just one more person discovering the powerful package that is our pocket computer.
Was looking at the Sony UX1XN, and came across something better and cheaper. This is hot
Now that the world is flying again, British Airways customers picking up the Business Life magazine will be treated to a look at the PsiXpda. Jonathan Margolis takes a look at our pocket computer and wonders “why go for an iPad when you can have the small and perfectly formed PsiXPda?”
The thing that I as a regular business traveller have craved for years is a truly pocketable, usable, practical PC with a QWERTY keyboard on which you can type properly.
We’re not long back from proudly exhibiting the PsiXpda at The Gadget Show in Birmingham, and it was a delight to meet lots of old friends and introduce them, and many new friends! to our pocket computer.
With all the news of a certain tablet based device launched by Apple over the Easter weekend, a number of publications have looked at alternatives, and IT Business Edge believe that organisations should consider devices like our PsiXpda pocket computer.
The release of the Apple iPad this week has created a lot of excitement. Clearly, however, there are many innovative and useful products already on the market.
One of the first thoughts from the countless people that got a hands-on experience with the PsiXpda in the halls of the Austin Convention Centre was “what can I do with it?”
The crowds at the South by Southwest Interactive conference are a savvy lot. This is, after all, the event where some huge products have been launched (e.g. Twitter), so to have enquiring minds turn to what the pocket computer could do… well, it’s a good sign.
Bouncing around the halls of the South by Southwest Interactive Conference, the PsiXpda is raising a lot of eyebrows both for the small size of the machine and the connectivity options that the powerful pocket computer has. With bluetooth and wifi for local access, and the unlocked 3G for mobile data wherever you are.
One of the advantages of the PsiXpda is the combination of a full desktop computer into a small package that is no larger than a paperback novel. The benefits of this size can be found in many places, but none more so than when travelling.
Daniel Robinson has been putting the PsiXpda through its paces on the V3 website, and his review of the pocket computer is comprehensive and positive:
Overall, we were impressed with the PsiXpda…The £449.99 including VAT price also looks steep compared to a netbook, but some phone handsets cost as much, and it should be borne in mind that the comparably sized OQO pocket computer left buyers with little change out of £1,000.
It’s been interesting to see the reaction to the PsiXpda around the internet, and many of you are commenting on the choice of the Operating System that we currently ship with the machine, namely Windows XP.
One of the interesting debates going on around computers in both the netbook and pocket computer form factor is that there is no clear choice of an OS that does everything for every consumer. The options come down to either a version of Linux or a version of Microsoft Windows.
It’s the time time of year when every tech company of note heads to Las Vegas and the Consumer Electronics Show, and PsiXpda is no exception. While you won’t find us (yet) on the show floor you can see the machines and wind down after a busy day at the PsiXpda Tweetup.
