"May require advanced setup skills"1.5 starson by e-dork
Pros: Lightweight and uber-cool
Cons: Works ONLY with the Microsoft Bluetooth stack
Summary: You're either going to love it or hate it. Computers UMPCs, and PDAs all ship with 1 of 3 Bluetooth Stacks, (the software that controls how BT interfaces with the OS)from Microsoft, Toshiba or Broadcom (Widcom). This device works great with MS, and not at all with the other two.
Sony, Panasonic, Dell and many others portables ship with Toshiba. If you order this device, be prepared to learn a LOT about bluetooth, as you will have to uninstall the software that shipped with your device and revert back to the MS BT Stack. This can be done, and there is plenty of info on the web on how to do it, but the procedure may render other BT devices such as stereo headphones unusable. And don't expect ANY support from the bendor. If you are unsure, check out their web site first and see the FAQs. It may also result in an unstable Operating System and require a complete wipe-n-reload of Windows.
I DO NOT recommend this device for novice or intermediate level geeks. This device and all the cool-toy points that go with it should be attempted only by those that still think pocket protectors are trendy.
Yes... mine works just fine and I love it.
