OK - no "Carry" website released as mentioned earlier, and no news on the subject until now. All apologies. The handbag design show went well - good turnout, excited audience, jubilant atmosphere. However, it was decided beforehand that the website launch would be postponed a few weeks. You see, the pictures we had of the bags, while adequate, weren't quite perfect. Stay tuned for a not-so-far-away launch once they are - you won't be disappointed.
I received my Axim X5 earlier in the week. Many a review has been written about the ho-hum design of the product casing, but I think it's nicely done. I'm pleased with it's vibrant color display, performance and battery life. The built-in audio capabilities (voice recording, MP3/WMA playback via Windows Media Player) are nice, although they could've jacked up the audio output a bit. I haven't lit up WiFi on it yet (I'm waiting for the card), but I'm not so happy with the selection of browsers available on the Windows PocketPC platform - the bundled IE 3.02 hybrid sucks and BitStream's ThunderHawk subscription-based browser
is overpriced. I'm hoping that the Mozilla and/or Opera camps have plans to release something in the near future...
Special thanks to the folks at Finnow Consulting
for a nice gift of appreciation. I'm glad that they and their users are enjoying the site and finding it informative and usable. That's what it's all about, isn't it?
