I’ve had an Acer n10 for a year and a half now… I love it; it’s really been a helpful tool in being organized and learning Chinese!!!
I go online & use MSN Messenger at Wifi hotspots (wifi CF card around NT$1200). Also have a handy folding keyboard (cost around NT$1500?).
-a little big
-Chinese PocketPC 2003 OS (afaik can’t install English)
-I don’t think they sell it anymore, and don’t think the newer models have CD and SD slots
-Windows Media Player (plays MP3 and Windows audio formats)
I think there’s a RealPlayer or Winamp version as well
I use it to listen to Chinese (not enough!) and music
-CF AND SD slots
I use CF Wifi card and then SD card for music, files, pix, etc.
-Comes with MS Word and Excel
-Syncs with Outlook (not Outlook Express?)
I never lose anyone’s contact info anymore!
-Infrared so I can beam info/pix to/from laptop, phone, wife’s PDA
-Dr. Eye Chinese<->English dictionary! (around NT$800)
Can write any character you see & get definition
Also zhuyin and pinyin input (hmmm pinyin maybe not standard)
-Relatively cheap (mine was around NT$10k so price must have dropped)
-Chinese PocketPC 2003 OS (I bought it to improve Chinese!)
-Lethal phaser that can blast Klingons (just checking to see if anyone’s reading this far, heehee)
I’ve had good service from both pdaking & Acer.
I’ve had a couple of H/W problems and took it directly to the Acer service center (very close to Bade Rd. computer mkt.).
Replaced the screen in 1 day… other repair same day!
