Dynamism Goodies; Nexio S160 PPC and Sony Mini-Laptop

Dynamism, importer of fine electronics from Japan and points around the globe, has made available two choice goodies; the Samsung Nexio S160 (pictured top) and the Sony U101. The Nexio is the second in the line of Windows CE powered palmtops from Samsung. It has a 400MHz PXA250 processor (not as good as the higher-bus PXA255) and has a 5″ landscape-oriented transflective screen, integrated Wi-Fi, 128 megs of RAM, CF and SD slots, and a removable keyboard. Price is a staggering $1300.

The Sony U101 is a full XP powered system, running on a 600MHz Mobile Celeron chip with 256 megs of RAM, a 30 gig HD, and a miniscule 7.1″ TFT screen. The screen also can be oriented in landscape or portrait mode for reading. Weighs just under 2 lbs and has a 3-5 hour battery life. Price starts at $2000.
