The sample shots here look fantastic...

Here's a distraction; instead of a convertible PC, what if I bought a notebook and a tablet separately, in this case a AMD Zacate notebook (either the Lenovo here, or a HP DM1z, or a Sony Vaio-YB), and a Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Nice to see Google offering a choice for users to tweak their search results, as content farms seem to have infiltrated the 1st page of several of my Google searches.
One example is thetechjournal dot com. First domain to be "banished" by me using this new Google Chrome extension. :)

Finally managed to find a apk file online. This post is posted on the app. It is also a good time to say a sad farewell to the Symbian OS, as today's announcement by Nokia pretty much means the end of the road for one of the first smartphone platforms. Really sad. On the other hand, the future for Android knows no bounds.

Good news of new WebOS products, including the Pre 3 above. However, I noticed that editing of Office documents (via Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite) is still a work in progress.
Even though I don't use this function everyday, it is a feature that I require. That's just too bad, as the way WebOS handles certain functions (e.g. Just Type) is refreshing.
Regular offthebeatenpath readers will know that my favorite internet browser is Opera Mini. So I was glad that I found an easy way to use this mobile browser on a PC desktop environment.
Click on the link above and follow the steps. You do have to click on 'Accept' a few times during the installation process (slightly omitted from the instructions provided), but overall, it's really easy.
Now I can surf at a reasonable speed, even when the internet speed is slow. Using the mobile browser also means access to mobile versions of websites, which I normally prefer as I do not need to scan the content horizontally. Many websites these days can be quite cluttered, and using the mobile version is faster and easier.

Remember to read the comments; 1st comment kicks off some of the limitations of the findings...

Google has finally produced an official Android app for Blogger. But I can't seem to find it on Market. Found the app on the website version of Market, but wasn't able to install it, with a "This item is not available on your carrier" message shown. :(

My K100D has been underused for quite a while, but will I shoot more with another Pentax body in my bag (that also shoots video)?

A big f2.4 aperture sounds impressive. With so many similar Android flagship handphones out there, one of the ways to stand out is great hardware, in this case, a good camera. With the Nokia N8 rather underwhelming in terms of its OS (but great camera), the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc could potentially provide a good compromise between a progressive OS (Android), big screen (4.2 inch) and a good camera.
