Oh Geez... I was also waiting for this..... not so much to use as a GPS... but more to carry around in my BH's handbag. So, when she goes shopping, I fish it out, surf on free WiFi and answer MSM questions.... :mrgreen:
Look on the bright side ya? :muak:

Very hard working Councilor you are Bro Jag. :thumbsup:

As for the small notebook, I think good for tracking purpose (but no mention of BT or USB ports :-k ).
