At first glance I was a bit excited…. after all CNN and the Montel Williams show are talking about this new gadget, the S-XGen from Seamless Wi-Fi. If you close your eyes (very important you do this) and just think about the specs, it sounds pretty good (don’t open your eyes!). The S-XGen has a keyboard, Intel processor, 20GB drive, TFT touchscreen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cell phone, ethernet, USB port, SD Slot, GPS, webcam, speakers, and runs Microsoft Mobile 6.0 with office preinstalled. Sounds like a laptop with a cell phone glued on the side, right?
Now the fun
ny part (open your eyes) this device, sorry can’t think of a better word, weighs a full pound, is bigger than most hamburgers, horrible product name, and has the funniest commercial I have seen in a while. By the way if you plan on going to the S-XGen website, turn down your speakers… they still think annoying sounds on a website are cool. Maybe this combination is why their stock is on the (SMWF.OB) OTC Bulletin Board for pennies?
I believe that this type of convergence is the way things will ultimately go… we’re just not there yet.
