Background: currently use a BlackBerry Q5 (phone), Nokia 808 (camera), and Samsung Galaxy Tab (tablet) on a daily basis. I also lug around a Asus Vivotab Note 8.
The new hybrid keyboard is softly sprung (yeah, less stiff than Q5), good amount of travel (more than Q10); but as expected, the bottom row of keys is difficult to reach with your thumb, as it is too close to the bottom edge of the device.
The Passport is so wide that one-handed typing is difficult; this is compounded by the usual security attachment behind handphones when placed as demo units inside a telco shop.

Just purchased the Asus VivoTab Note 8, 64GB version (8 Aug 2014); was on offer for S$399 [free VersaSleeve, Wedge keyboard].
To be honest, it's not been a bed of roses.
It's my first experience of Windows 8, and it seems the curse of alternating good and bad Windows OS continues.
- Windows XP [good]
- Windows Vista [bad]
- Windows 7 [good]
- Windows 8 [bad]

Dynamism - Tainell U-Touch 500
UMPCs have been virtually extinct ever since Apple's iPad appeared.
As usual, I was moaning about this on UMPC Portal. One comment recently pointed out a new UMPC.
Haven't heard of Tainell before, but the specs look respectable. Price is quite expensive though. The highest spec version is selling at US$1,199.Didn't manage to find a review online.

Am hooked on Modern Family; now catching up from Season 1 onwards... Finding it difficult to find streams that work. Just remembered a trick that my brother discovered. English shows found on Chinese video sites. Chinese shows found on English video sites.
Prime example here.

An example of why BBC is still better than Sky in its coverage of F1. Great segment, with the sporting Mclaren drivers trying out presenting and producing respectively.
