The good folks at TabletKiosk have let me borrow one of their prototype eo UMPCs for a few days and I will be offering my observations about the device. Here’s a couple of quick photos of the unit which will have to do until I have spent a little more time with the eo:

Post any questions you have about the eo and I’ll try to answer them in subsequent posts. Maybe even a little video tour so stay tuned. So far, me likee! :-)

  1. Wow.

    James, hows the screen brightness? How is it on a lower setting?

    How fast is the processor? Faster then the Celeron?

    And finally, please do a battery life test.

    Thanks,

    Mike

  2. - Try and install iTunes on it.

    I will be interested to see how an XP program without any possible tweaks toward an ink interface behaves on the 1ghz processors.

    - Show us a screen shot of a MS Reader file in portrait mode?

    - Show the power brick, and length of cable. If these things really only last 2 hours on battery, we’re going to be using them plugged in a lot.

    - Battery removal and replacement.. If I buy a spare, how reasonable is it to just carry one around and drop it in when the first gets low?

    Thanks!

  4. Could you post a picture with it side by side with the Sony U? How about your tablet pc?

    How is the speed?

    I wanted a umpc with the control on the left and the right and left mouse buttons on the left. Is the layout with the mouse buttons on the left awkward?

    Battery life?

  5. Great that you are doing this.

    Here are a few questions…
    - how is the casing, does it feel sturdy and strong?
    - how sensitive are the screens? Can i lock the screen from touch sensitive behaviours?
    - is there any special application from tabletkiosk pre-loaded?
    - do we have an option of installing / reinstalling OS?
    - will you try installin linux?

    I’m not sure if you’ll be installing stuff on it but was curious, but sure i hope you’ll post atleast one blog from the device… awaiting your review

  7. How responsive is the touch screen? Does it strike a good balance between accepting pen and finger input vs. screening out the imprint of your palm/stray finger?
