A Deeper Look at the Tiqit and Windows XP Handhelds basically its a HPC on steroids. Size of PDA but with most of the capability of a tablet. Yummy! I’m a gadget type of geek, of course the fact that I could put Linux on this is just icing on the cake. It’s not perfect- heavy for a PDA (although much lighter than any tablet), runs warm, slow boot times and no built in Wi-Fi (!) It does boast a 640×480 screen, which is over double what is available on most similarly sized PDA’s.
Tiqit is one of many XP handhelds coming down the pike. Hopefully one will be equipped with Wi-Fi and an 800×600 screen. Oh, but then again all this is really just a pipe-dream about a nice gadget when it costs in the $1500-$2500 range. I could never justify that one past Tammy.
