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.

LOL, RDP doesn't count as a terminal, you should have said so earlier. ;)

As far as remote GUI access, VNC works great on the Nokia 770.

"My Apache gives me just that on Sprint's EVDO network."

Just FYI, my Nokia connects fine to my Samsung EVDO phone on Sprint's EVDO network. I use it daily. ;)

But I pity you if you have to use a Microsoft product all day. I really do.

Best of luck! ;)

Strange, I was never able to get that to work right... It was as though it would timeout the EVDO connection after about 60 seconds of idle time. So every time I asked for a page, it would have to "dial-up" again and I'd have to wait for the connection to be re-established. I had a Samsung phone too.

But, I think that might have been the phone, because it would do that when tethered (via bluetooth) to my Mac, too.

Not long ago, I would've said the same thing to someone arguing for Windows Mobile. But, I've come to realize that it doesn't matter if it says "Microsoft" or "Apple" or "Linux powered." on it. What matters is if it solves the problem at hand better than its competition. I believe (in my case) that it does.

But, that being said, I still look at my phone and see the Windows logo on the Start menu and get an uneasy, sinking feeling. :-)
