It is hard to accurately place this device into a specific category. At the Mobile WiMAX Summit, Samsung recently unveiled this convergence device that is like a PDA, UMPC and regular computer all rolled folded into one. The P9000 can fold away into a nice one-pound package, and unfold to unveil an almost full-size QWERTY keyboard and LCD. It is powered by Windows XP and includes WiMAX and CDMA EV-DO for connectivity. Overall it is a pretty unique device, but I am in no hurry to toss out my laptop and PDA for this. I'd hate to be "that guy." You know, the person that pulls out the crazy PDA or laptop at a meeting just so people will stare at it and ask questions.
