The Intel Atom CPU is definitely performing better than some of us expected.
QIK has arrived for more Windows Mobile devices.
Matt returned home from Singapore with a Samsung OMNIA.
He also picked up a Sony Ericsson G900, but that one’s for sale already. ;)
Anyone getting excited for the HTC Dream aka: the Google Android phone?
Dell intros their Inspiron Mini 9 netbook. Will there be any other models? How about subsidies?

My understanding is that there is either 512 MB or 1 GB of memory in the MSI Wind along with an open RAM slot. I haven’t taken it apart yet to find out for sure. I have no intention of swapping out the WiFi card at this time; I’d likely do what I did when I was running Leopard on my Samsung Q1UP: use my EV-DO modem. ;)

Kevin, I don’t think MSI Wind has any onboard RAM. You can replace the 1GB stick with a 2GB stick (the Atom chipset supports only up to 2GB). If you replace the WiFi card with a Broadcom-based one (e.g., Dell 1490 b/g is fairly cheap on eBay), it makes making Leopard work on MSI Wind much easier.


I don’t mean to be nit-picky, but the link to “Time v2.1″ by Meta Sektion has long been broken.
