Unpackingthecpc8_1Since the DualCor cPC didn’t materialize in the first quarter as expected, there are very few shots of it in the wild. Judie over at The Gadgeteer just received her engineering sample for review and while she hasn’t had a chance to use the unit for review purposes, she’s got a ton of great unboxing pictures. Right off the bat, I’d say DualCor made the same mistake Samsung did: they didn’t solicit any end-user opinions on stylus design. The DualCor stylus looks even less usable than the Samsung Q1 stylus, which I think is a major flaw. Let’s face it: if you’re selling a touchscreen Tablet PC without a keyboard, i.e.; a slate, shouldn’t that stylus design be pretty high on the priority and usability list? Anyway, for plenty o’ pics, hit up Judie’s diary.

  1. Actually, I think DualCor did worse! I’ve had my Q1 for about 2 weeks(Love It by the way!!!), and though I understand your point about the Q1 stylus, I’ve adjusted well to it. I don’t know, maybe after using the same type of stylus on my previous 3 Palm devices, I’ve grown use to the “Itsy Bitsy Skinny” one(s). But that thing that DualCor sends along appears wicked nasty!!!!! Who ever designed it must be kidding. I can’t even see using that thing and that’s what it looks like, a “Thing”. I don’t know, I guess we’ll have to see what Judie’s thoughts will be after using it.

  2. Any displeasure I might have with the stylus pales in comparison to how I feel about these sentences in the “Getting Started Guide” to which Julie provides a link at the end of her diary entry: “The cPC battery, which is located inside the unit, is not accessible. Do not tamper with or open the device’s casing.”(Kevin) “Any such action voids the
    cPC product warranty.” Wow, I guess that answers the extended battery question before it evens gets asked…..

  3. Please don’t censor not think less of me for simply speaking the truth. Julie is HOT. :)
