Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

I must confess that I noticed a colleague with a HTC Touch a few weeks back and was instantly drawn to "Touch" it, it wasn't the actual Touch interface that did it, it was the size and elegance of the design - very sweet, almost like a case of "if Apple did black mobile handsets, this is what it would/should look like"

So I recently made a slight deviation on the way to a Clients just to call in a shop that has the Touch so that I could have another look and feel - and I have to say that my gadget lust has not diminished one bit - the only issue now is that I haven't had a chance to see the other two flavours in the flesh down here in Australia.

I'm still using my trusty Orange C600 (iMate SP5) that I brought back from the UK and the size and format with just the numeric keypad is very nice and I'm very used to it, so I'm really loath to head off and get the Touch when what I really might find is that I can't live without the Dual - and now there is the Touch Cruise? When will it ever end.... <sob>  ;-) 

HTC Touch Cruise Announced - Hands on video and pics!
By Gears. Published on 12 Nov 2007.

HTC have just announced the latest addition to their range - the Tom Cruise. Sorry.. HTC Touch Cruise. It's that HTC Polaris we saw some time back and it looks set to replace the HTC Artemis (T-Mobile MDA Compact III etc).
It comes complete with the enhanced finger-poking HTC TouchFLO technology plus the funky new HTC Album and keyboard additions we saw on the HTC Touch Dual. You also get the HTC Home system with real-time weather, large clock, quick app launcher and access into ringtone settings. Oh, and let's not forget that this comes with a new-style wheel system and built-in GPS functionality and software to get you from A to B quickly and easily.
The Qualcomm MSM7200 CPU drives Windows Mobile 6 Pro at 400MHz and there's 256MB ROM/ 128MB RAM. Quad-band 3G / HSPDA connectivity, Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11 b/g WiFi will keep you online.
Now, as you may have spotted before, we managed to get one of these devices a few weeks back. Read on for exclusive pictures, press release and a hands-on video of the HTC Touch Cruise ! We'll have a full review up soon, so keep it locked! - HTC Touch Cruise Announced - Hands on video and pics!

Please be careful with this announce from "Sara", this is a scam from some africa nations (specially nigeria), they will say that they work in UK, using redirected phone number. We are investigating and reporting this kind of stuff to interpol.
