A quick heads-up for those of you not yet bored out of your skulls with iPhone news - I've been cherry-picking my RSS folder for interesting and/or landmark pieces on it, and added them to the relevant node.
I've also been perusing the news on the Nokia/N800. Not that I'm considering getting one, after my 2005 tussles with Nokia and the dismal performance of the 770, but because I found a rather interesting and refreshing piece that discusses its advantages and (very significant) UI shortcomings without all the Linux fanboyism that the device is usually greeted with.
Not that its most ardent defenders won't want to gloss over the UI issues, but let's face it, it's the UI that makes the device useful (or merely annoying), and in that regard most portable devices are still a bitter disappointment.
For instance, it's quite telling that, if I were to pay for a PDA these days, I would still opt for a Palm device (most likely a TX), despite its "technical" shortcomings (resolution, clunky fonts, format limitations, no multitasking, etc.) and Palm's utter inability to manage an OS strategy of any kind.
