The sub-$1,000 portable device challenge

Advfull2Fellow MobileTechRoundup podcast co-host, Matt Miller, poses a great question. He’s trying to figure out what mobile device meets his needs but costs less than a grand. Just a year or two ago, this might have been much easier to answer because there were far fewer choices available. Matt has taken advantage of the growing wave of handsets and ultra-portables by outlining many of the one’s he bought, reviewed or used of late. Each has its pros and cons of course, and since everyone’s needs are different the devices that work best for him might not be best for you.Still, if you’re looking for a good overview of the choices under $1,000, his article is a nice starting point. In it, he offers commentary on the Apple iPhone, Nokia’s N800/N810, the WiBrain B1, the HTC Advantage, the Asus Eee PC 700, the new Asus Eee PC 900, the HP Mini-Note, and Celio’s REDFLY. Part of me wishes that Matt would up the price point a wee bit because I think the Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium would work well for him; unfortunately, that device is about 25% out of price range.We’ve covered quite of few of these devices as well, so if any intrigue you after reading Matt’s article, you can find them here:
