In the next few weeks, I’ll be introducing a new series called "Quick Takes," which will be reviews based on short-term usage (1-2 weeks) of recently released gadgets. These will be products that I have out on loan from the lovely folks at Dynamism, who have generously offered to send me all sorts of goodies to write about. Quick Takes will be a supplementary review series that will not replace any of my usual stuff. I don’t have all the details worked out yet, but I’m thinking of dividing each QT review into several parts so that I can cover as much as possible within the given timeframe. How many parts will depend on the type of product, as there is more to explore on a UMPC than, say, an mp3 player. Some of the gadgets I hope to review in the coming months are the OQO 01+, Samsung Q1, TabletKiosk eo, Sharp Zaurus SL-C3200, and Toshiba Gigabeat S30.
I’ll also be working on a "Reader Requests" series to answer questions that can’t fully be addressed via email or in the post comments section. So if you haven’t received a response to one of your questions yet, rest assured that I’m not ignoring you!
You can also soon expect to see extended coverage of the Nokia Nseries smartphones. I’m getting the entry-level model, the N70, later this week and will eventually get other models from the series. My primary interest in the devices derived from the fact that the Nseries is being advertised not as phones, but as multimedia computers. We’ll just have to see about that.
