649eu?? That would be like $700~$800?? There goes my dreams ...
Maybe I'll get a Nokia 770 + BT keyboard + extra battery pack and still come in below $500. *sigh* ... I see a few future headlines already ...
"iLiad start off to lurkwarm response"
"iRex still positive in having a strong quarter to end 2006"
"iRex fails to meet analyst's expectations"
"Will iLiad make it this time (2007)"
"iRex officials admit to overproduction of iliad units"
"Consumers chose Sony Reader over iLiad's superior specs"
ok, I think I should stop ...
... *sigh* ... what a sad day. It's bad enough that UMPC will very likely only retail in the high $800 or more (Samsung's UMPC will retail for over $1k), and that its battery life will only be 2.5 ~ 3hrs which is paltry for such a tiny MOBILE device! And now iLiad is going to retail at such a high price ... aye aye aye
