Grid update

Controversial, probably, but I've updated my Grid of 'real world mobile computing solutions', which now includes the new Nokia 7710 and the fairly new Nokia 6630. All comments welcome!

A couple of suggestions:

* A section for eBook friendliness - its one of the main uses of PDAs these days.
* Possibly a section for Powerpoint, if you're going to cover Office applications.
* Ease of typing - most of the PDAs listed have a keyboard in some form.

One minor beef:

I'd disagree with the 0 points for the Sendo on the Spreadsheet section - Quickoffice can allow you to view Excel speadsheets (or if you have a very certain version, edit them as well. Same goes for Word documents).

Sendo? Are you sure you're not looking at an old version of the page? The Sendo X was removed from the table after I became disillusioned by its old OS. Not the X's fault, but developers tend to assume a more recent OS and things like Quickoffice don't (without hacking) work on it. I replaced it with the Nokia 6630.

Yep, checked the link. Where exactly on the page does it say 'Sendo X'? Either I'm blind, or I'm mad, or there's some cache trickery going on at your end!

try using Ctrl-Refresh.

Aaahh - there we go. Any plans to update the Tungsten E to the E2? The added bluetooth could be a deciding factor for many.
