a large 640x480 screen - it is really not much good at all as a
phone! :-) I might just relegate it to being a pocket VR demo machine
if I got (or rather when I get) an iPhone.
(Although VR support in some way in the iPhone would be absolutely
wonderful. Of course.)

<http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eierlegende_Wollmilchsau> - can't have an
animal that is good at laying eggs, producing wool and milk and still be
for the phone, I would just buy a phone with bluetooth and long battery
life (I am very happy with my seven years old Nokia 6310i - b&w screen
and no polydisturbing sound, although one that has a proper MP3 player
inside could be a bonus).
for mobile computing / VR demo I would get an x86-based subnotebook
rather than a PDA with a weaker CPU.
no place in my world for PDAs nor for smartphones since x86-based
subnotebook have enough juice to go through the day and proper
WiFi/Bluetooth connectivity with a proper display in a form factor
equivalent to PDAs.

*incredibly* useful to be able to carry a VR demo machine around in
I wouldn't try to write an article on the iPhone, and I wouldn't use
it for my main email machine either. But I would use it for *quick*
messaging (SMS, IM, email), *simple* browsing, playing music... and
of course making phone calls. :-)
There is the concern of combining too many things and ending up with
a jack-of-all-trades device. But I think the iPhone has trancended
that; it is proving to be at least pretty good at its multiple core
functions. I think it'd do me. And I'll just have to use the Ameo for
VRs, dangit. :-)

no - not the Standard version is working on this PPC WM6. It´s the mobile version.
PS: i had a typo in my last mail:
i can really - NOT - confirm that: i can not complain about the quality of panning on this
device. It´s not as smooth as Spi-V, but to show people what this is all about quite ok! It´s
very handy to have a small tool around to show as an image tells more than thousand
