The Sony U-70 has been sold


  Just a note for anyone interested that the Sony U has been sold and pending the transaction clearing PayPal is no longer available.  Thanks to all who responded. 



Congrats on the new child, Raphael! Thanks for all the nice words but you must have forgotten that you were /.ed too. :)

Anyway, I’m not going anywhere. I have been writing about mobile tech for a very long time and am not going to stop for a minute. The Sony U is a nice device but it’s not the only mobile solution out there and I intend to keep doing more of the same. Hope your family is well and visit us more often!

Wow, James. With all your input and fame (weren’t you /.’ed?) and collaboration over the past few months with our U70’s, it’s really sad to see yours go.

Of course, I sold mine off a couple of months ago, right as the U750P was being introduced to the US. So, it wasn’t a total loss, since I got good fun and use out of it, and sold it for the price of a new U750P. I, too, am making some financial adjustments, but for good reason – a second child coming into our family, just a couple of weeks away!

I’m sure we’ll recover and get back on track with everything so that we can both tackle the next fun gadget to come our way. =)

Many thanks and best wishes!


Fernando, right now I am using a laptop and a Toshiba e800 VGA Pocket PC for mobility. I will definitely get a Tablet PC as soon as I can. The BT card, keyboard, and mouse went with the Sony U. I already have a ThinkOutside IR keyboard for the Toshiba and it works fine for now. I just posted another story today about mobile tech in action.


Hi James:

So, what Tablet PC are you using now for mobility? Are you using the BT keyboard, mouse and CF card with it? I was interested in purchasing those from you for my U, but I imagine you either sold them with your U or are using them still.

Best of luck and I continue to look forward to your stories and experiences.



Mike, I am still very mobile. Laptop and PPC, Bluetooth phone for connectivity anywhere, Verizon AirCard for the laptop, WiFi. I just can’t carry it in a little man bag anymore. :)

I hope your deadbeat client wakes up covered in boils from head to toe — plus embedded hemorrhoids!

This is a dark day in tech history…

…maybe someone SMART from Sony will wake up and send you one on long-term loan!

… or maybe someone from OQO will take their finger out and send you one of those!

You must be mobile again!


Yes it was that device that brought me here in the first place. Hopefully your money issues will go away.
