Hey all

After my near-perfect experience with the Nokia N900, I found myself endlessly searching for a clamshell linux phone. Why near-perfect? I found it extremely annoying not being able to control Maemo's UI using only the physical keyboard. That and I dropped it once, slightly cracking the screen as a result.

So as far as ergonomic comfort goes, while preserving the screen (against klutzes like me), I figured clamshell is the way to go for cell phones with physical qwerty (opinions? I have never used a qwerty clamshell).

I stumbled upon reviews of a device called the HandyPC S101 a few years back and since then wondered where I could get one. I even contacted the company but with no luck at all.

ANYONE?

I love Chippy! I've been watching his vids since 2005 when he demoed those keyboards with Windows XP INSIDE back at CeBit 2005
