PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless HTC's eagerly anticipated entry into the ultra-mobile PC market has made an early, unscheduled appearance on the web, adding weight to the company's own admission that it could release a UMPC-like product as early as 2007. Mobile-Review has more photos [Russian, spec list in English] of the device. Don't tell me you don't (secretly) want one.

The applications are slightly modified to run on Maemo with Hildon widgets (aka slightly modified GTK+ for the smaller formfactor). But they are still the same applications as their desktop counterparts.

I am actually working on various projects for the Maemo platform and use scratchbox daily.

How about you Eugene?

I should add, its incredible how easy it is to port most applications to Maemo. And that's PORT, not rewrite similar miniapplication from scratch, but PORT the full application.

The fact that you can port applications to Maemo does not mean that there are 20,000 apps out for it, as it is for Windows Mobile. Currently, there are nore like 200 or so.

Please do not steer the discussion towards Maemo, this platform does not have a phone stack, so it would be useless in the HTC Athena.

Also, my name is Eugenia. Eugene is a male's name.
