- Aug 1, 2006Well, John,
I took the plunge and ordered one of the UX90's (Made to order Japanese model...but
getting it with English keyboard...) from Conics.net in Japan.... should be here Friday
As for some of the other comments posted....to each his own....but....
This is NOT a UMPC, but a micro-PC along the lines of an OQO, but better from all the
reviews I've read....don't have anything against UMPC's, just that they are different animal
if you check their specs...
As noted, this runs MS WinXP so no problem running Windows apps...
Also, unlike the US market model, the Japanese model has a standard CF Card slot along
with the MemoryStick slot so you can use whichever you want (or both...).
Have had several other Sony Vaio products over the years from Picturebooks to U101 and
they all worked great and had no problems...
They aren't cheap though...but no one makes you get one... I just sold several other
devices to raise funds for this new little device...
Still will keep my LifeDrive at least for awhile...but starting to think more and more that
there's less and less reason to have one (or a PocketPC, etc..) when you can have access to
standard PC apps wherever you go and get away from all this syncing and file moving
business from PC to PDA and vice-versa....
You guys should read some real reviews of the UX series before making up your minds
about it...here's a few....
Just my 2¢......
Silicone Valley Digerati
Sharp Zaurus SL-C3100
Sony Vaio VGN-UX90 (soon...)
Averatec AV1050-EB1 (anyone interested?..)
