Keyboard, screen angle and mouse all looking better on NetWalker..

I am getting the NetWalker soon from Conics.net so then we can compare them even more...

that netwalker is interesting, but a bit to pricey...

Yeah pricey if you live outside of Japan.. not so in Japan though.

Since it runs Ubuntu (Linux) changing languages is very easy. You can even boot the desktop into the language of your choice from the login menu.

Not something you can do with Windows XP Home.

Have you ever thought about a mod to get a better Display-Keyboard-angle on the UMID?

Netwalker with Atom Z520 processor ... would be great ... Arm based mids are great idea but they missed the point ... Price for those product mast be around 300 dollars ..

Nice keyboard on NetWalker. But a pity the screens are so small; with those thick bezels, there's plenty of room for much larger screens instead.

I think the reasoning behind the smaller screen is that it allows for gripping space on the sides. How else are you going to hold the device securely and walk around with it? There's very little room to grip next to the keyboard (like there is on eee pcs).
