Eagerly Waiting (part 3)

They've not arrived yet. It's a good job really because I still can't get my head around that name. The marketing literature describes the ASUS as a sub-notebook, 'Easy to learn, easy to work, easy to play' I always wondered what those three E's meant. I have heard others refer to them as UMPC's-Ultra Mobile PC's or the new jargon of the day MID-Mobile Internet Device. Not too sure about the term mobile and I'm sure Mark will agree with me given the Eee PC only has a 2hr battery life, no 3g/cell connection (as yet) and doesn't exactly fit in your pocket but that term Internet Device that's growing on me erm IDC-Internet Device Class has a nice ring to it.

I do agree the accepted definition of mobile is being able fit in your pocket.
