The Harrier Pocket PC is buzzing...

The Harrier Pocket PC is buzzing...
There are currently three Microsoft MVP Mobile Devices in New Zealand: myself, Darryl Burling and Chris Auld. All of us receveid a brand new Harrier Pocket PC Phone Edition connected to Telecom New Zealand new 3G network based on CDMA EVDO. I also know that they are sending these devices to CIO and journalists. Well done, it looks like blitz campaign. I have already tested the Harrier with Spb Benchmark, and you can check the performance charts in our Performance Centre. Expect our review to be here during the weekend.

I also spent most of last night installing software on this new Pocket PC... 128MB RAM is cool, and with another 14MB flash available, I can install all apps I have - I always needed a SD card on my other Pocket PC devices.

Well, rant on e-mail again... Why companies don't reply e-mails? Sometimes we post news on Geekzone and their PR managers are quick to send an e-mail to us saying "the article needs a change here or there". But when I send back an e-mail to them asking for some information or review, the reply doesn't come. Why some companies (or people on these companies) think these things have to be one way only? It isn't about them is about the users... Sometimes I feel like creating a list of companies that don't reply e-mails, but that would be too long...

And before I go, Sony confirmed it'll launch its Ultra Portable PC in the US. This is cool because this device was only available in Japan, and now other markets will be able to get it... But at US$2000? Ouch...
