I’ve been using the U820 as my only mobile device for a week now. For ad-hoc work it’s been fantastic. Small enough to take everywhere and big enough to be able to scan a ton of email or RSS feeds or to tap out the occasional long email or post, like this. The only thing I need to fix is the resume time. From hibernation it takes minutes. Longer than a cold boot. Something is definitely wrong!
The Mifi makes accessing the Internet as comfortable as being at home. Built-in 3G would be slightly easier but I wouldn’t be able to advertise UMPCPortal.com as the hotspot name!
