"Rather than calling it a futuristic gadget, analysts, industry
partners IBM and Texas Instruments, and customers alike said that
the MA4-TC represents the next major phase in computing, leaps
ahead of today's PDAs (personal digital assistants)."
"Weighing in at just under 900 grams and the size of a clock
