It may never grace the shores outside of Japan but we can always hope. The newly announced Hitachi FLORA-ie MX1 Pocket PC (I mean Windows Mobile device) borrows a page from the Sharp Zaurus design by incorporating a slide-out keyboard making it a very nice PPC. The 4 inch LCD running in full VGA makes the MX1 a real mobile workhorse. All the details are in Japanese at this point and we’ll follow this as more information is unveiled. Nice looking device.
