The biggest fear I had about my Kohjinsha SH6 was that its performance was going to be completely inadequate to replace my Electrovaya Scribbler Tablet PC as my work computer. I would have purchased a UMPC that was simply not up to that job and would have wasted my money. That fear has proved to be completely unfounded!
As the video clearly shows the SH6 is completely capable of running multiple Microsoft Office applications at the same time at a very reasonable performance level. This is exactly what I do in my normal work day. Most of the my workday Office applications are started up in the morning, stay in memory all day long, and are then used as required.
In the video I give credit to the SH6’s 2GB of memory for this, but I also think that the unit’s graphic processor should be given lots of credit as well. It’s obviously able to offload a huge amount of processing from the CPU.
In any case it looks like my money has been well spent. I’ve got a unit that works well in my work environment (hooked up to full keyboard, mouse, and monitor), at the hotel (with only the addition of a small travel mouse), or on the plane (watching movies and/or TV shows while hooked up to Bose noise-cancelling headphones). My Tablet is going to just stay home from now on!
Check out this very detailed video review of the Kohjinsha SH6, including running Aero under Vista. I must admit to being amazed by its performance!
I created a video in response to viewing the James Kendrick video on the HTC Advantage yesterday. It shows how I think the Nokia N800 compares to the Advantage. You be the judge! You can download it as high resolution 30 minute 50+ MB video in full 800 X 480 size to get a real feel for the N800′s screen.
Yesterday I purchased a Flip Video camcorder (http://www.theflip.com/) at Costco for only $89.99. It’s about the size of my Treo 700p and offers simply amazing performance for such a small device. It plugs into the USB port of a PC or Mac. At least with Windows, this actually causes video editing software to be launched on the PC that allows you to view, edit, and merge together video clips into a single movie, complete with background music. Check out my first usage of the device on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXUEF-YILfY) – recording a dinner I had with two colleagues from work last night at Oakley’s Bistro in Indianapolis. YouTube actually doesn’t do justice to the quality of the video, but it will at least give you some idea of the capabilities of this little jewel.
