I'd really like a similar device with a full sized keyboard. This certainly replaces a little pocket notebook, but personally I don't use pocket notebooks. I'd like something to replace a full-sized notebook: easy to type on, basically just good for text, sort of a portable digital typewriter.
Anyone know any good resources for larger screens? I'm curious if you can get 7" + screens with slightly better refresh rates than eInk, but not as power-hungry as a full-color backlit display. The perfect screen would be something like the TI-86, except 8 times as large. Does anyone make 1000-2000 character displays in a 7-14 inch form factor?
I feel like you ought to be able to make something like with 30-40 hours battery life (if not better) for around $200-$300.
If you want the smallest possible device with a nearly full sized keyboard, you should get a Sony Vaio P. They're no longer made, but they are "real computers", being rather slow netbooks. They'll fit in a jeans pocket barely comfortably, and in other pants' pockets rather comfortably.
