Hi everyone,

I agree - if the changes we would all love to see were to happen, the
resulting price increase and reduced battery life would probably destroy it.
I looked at the HP Windows CE machines at the London Windows 97 show in
February and I like them very much - but the price is too high in Britain
(#600+ for the 4mb version) and the other problems Chris mentioned,
especially power consumption, are off-putting.

Incidentally, the remaining stock of Omnigo 100's in the UK has been bought
by Morgan Computers, who are currently selling them at #150+VAT. I understand
they have quite a few, but I imagine that the price will drop as they try to
clear them.
