quote: Totally disagree. A big international corporate company I am aware of is issuing these as standard equipment to 2nd level managers and up as replacements for regular desktops and notebook desktops. That is to those that prefer to have them as replacements
quote: That totally depends on how it is used. ..., if you need to type some emails or god forbid make up a quick presentation/excel spreadsheet, an UMPC like this which has to be typed using your thumbs is a very very poor choice for productivity.... Big advantage of UMPCs is touch screen interface and small size while retaining full PC functionality. Keyboard on these things is an afterthought because it is implied it will not be used frequently (if at all). Managers typically live by email and frequently need to quickly type an email/make up some demo, so UMPC like this is typically a bad choice for them.
