That’s just $100 more than a Pepper Pad 3 and $200 more than an iPhone!

This not only effectively kills the Pepper Pad 3, but it also torpedoes those awful Linux-based Intel Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) that were announced. Who wants to dick around with Linux? Why settle for fewer apps and a ton of aggravation in trying to install them? Who needs those kinds of headaches? No one, that’s who!

Samsung is going to not only sell a ton of these, they will wind up defining the UMPC market.

This low-end model offers XP, while higher-end ones offer Vista. I like XP.

I think this will be my next machine!
