seamless internet's s-xgen wireless handheld

CES 20076 The Leatherman Tool of the mobile device world, Seamless Interet's S-XGen handheld communicator was demo'd at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.

The 398g clamshell unit opens to reveal its display and PDA-like control keys and media playback buttons. Below the fold, the device opens out again to expose its almost full-size QWERTY keyboard.

The S-XGen is powered by a 520MHz XScale processor and 256MB of memory. If you think it's a little bulky - it measures 15 x 10 x 3cm - that's because there's a 20GB hard drive on board too, long with Ethernet and USB ports. It's wireless, with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE plus 3G. There's even a webcam, Seamless said.
