Toshiba e310

Ordered a Toshiba e310 Pocket PC from Amazon last night. Looks like it ought to be a good unit. I’m still happy with my Palm i705, but my company is starting a new handheld project, using Pocket PC devices instead of Palms, so I figured I should get myself one and figure out the OS. Maybe even do a little development myself. Of course, I’ve had NS Basic for the Palm since February, and I haven’t written anything useful with that yet, so I’m probably not going to find myself with enough time to do Pocket PC development either. Well, who knows. It could happen!


Haven’t blogged in a while. Sorry!

PalmSource was good. Learned a lot. I still haven’t actually written any useful Palm programs yet, but at least I’ve gotten past the “Hello World” stage. I picked up a new i705 while I was out there. It’s pretty neat.

Things I like: rechargeable battery, always-on email, 8MB RAM, SD card slot.

Things I’m not thrilled about: still the same old monochrome screen!

PC Expo

Not much interesting to report from PC Expo this year.

Stuff that just wasn’t there this year:

  • Dot-coms.

  • Linux.

  • Dell.

Stuff that was:

  • Palm, Handspring, and Pocket PC stuff. And lots of it.

  • Lots of wireless stuff — service providers, hardware, devices.

  • Ott-Lite. These guys make nifty lamps. Okay it doesn’t sound exciting, but really, they’re nice lamps.
