Sharp NetWalker PC-Z1 unboxing and hands-on

Click to see the video

Some more first impressions:

- I'm not liking the keyboard at all.. key caps bend to all directions.

- touch screen got better by cleaning it fully ( there was traces of screen cover glue )

- after i calibrated the screen it is accurate and easy to use ( u need to turn it off and on to save the calibrations )

- I adjusted the font sizes bigger for easier use

- mouse is ok

- surfing with it is sometimes ok, sometimes too slow

- battery life seems good.. no real numbers yet but it could be about 7 hours on full use

I will test it more and will try to get flash and youtube working ( there should be a patch for that )

... soon we will have nice "Atom vs ARM" on UMPC battle..

Thanks again Conics for sending me it!

Very slow. ARM just can't cut it outside of smartphones.
How is the WiFi reception? It appeared to only have one signal bar.

Wifi is fine said...

i cant help wonder if the slowness comes from slow internal storage or something similar...
