    Great device. Pocketable and reasonably powerful at an entry-level price.

    Great device … he-he… only one problem – manufacturer. Prepare to wait for 6-8 months, then, may be, Intel Merryfield SOCs will be in every second smartphone on the planet, and Android smartphones will be sold with prepaid sim-cards for $15-$20 in your local grocery store. 🙂

    p.s. According to lies from Intel/Microsoft CEOs.
