[NTLK] New PDA gizmo folks might be interested in.

As a collector of ancient and obsolete PDAs (in addition to my MP2100 I also have a Sharp Zaurus ZR-5800, Handspring Visor, BlackBerry Curve, HP Jornada, HP iPAQ, etc.), I am intrigued by this device. While I don’t see it replacing my iPhone or iPad Pro, the idea of a “real” keyboard on such a small device has a definite appeal.

Is there anyone “out there” actively considering this?
