The price could be a little high on this one at launch but it competes well with the UMID M1 UMPC. Battery life of 10 hours is a real bonus. Combine this with a Mifi and you're good to go! On the video (see below) we're impressed with the load time (10-seconds for on a Firefox browser) and the embedded Flash video.

Sharp Netwalker alternatives

based on weight, screen-size and form-factor.
Raon Digital Everun (S60H), 4.8 inch, 490 grams (1.08 lbs)
We like the Everun! Flash disk, auto screen rotate, good screen brightness and the ability to upgrade with HSDPA or EVDO. Prices are very competitive and there's a good range of accessories. Class-leading battery life. On the negative side, the Everun has problems decoding ost video formats apart from MPEG-4. This is no desktop replacement but performs very well and is highly recommended as a mobile internet device.
