First off, i read most of the thread, i know who you're marketing to.
Second, no, you didn't follow sentence structure...i'm talking about the combination PDA laptop. Its something that i, and many others whave wanted, but the price is to staggering, killing interest. I haven't researched your interest levels. I wouldn't remark on an interest level that i have no idea about. You've got a computer for a car. I had a pocket pc in a car that played movies that had people asking questions and giving positive comments. Its not secret: people like cool stuff.
Third, i've already remarked on how the average person would find it appealing, my only comment of restriction on that was that of the price. Why not get laptop with GPS and an XM reciever for less than that price? Its just too high in my mind. The people who pay an extra $2K for in dash navigation when much better alternatives are out there for <$1K, the fast and the furious crowd, and the gadget hounds, i feel, will rush for this like they do for every new device. Then there will be the continuing market of those looking for an easy solution to a CPC. My comments weren''t negative in terms if your product, except of its features per price agianst what people already have, or meant to be. However i stand by statements. That's what my openinng comments reflected on. Personally, i like your product. Last year, i had a friend who wanted me to start researching CPC's and build a system like yours. I'm a mech, he's comp sci. We never got around to it since he ran into monetary issues and I maintained that using a laptop with a docking station would just be all around better. I ran with my ideas until circumstances prevented me from doing so. Nostalgia aside, its still too much. A person is in a car for anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours 98% of the time. $2500 is an outrageous price for that, period, since, by law, some of the feautures can't be accessaible when driving. A couple hundred over the AVIC, ie, my 1500 mark, and you got yourself a good thing going.
Beyond that, i compared your interface for the CPC that of an iPod's to MP3 players....there is no higher multimedia compliment out there, so i'm not sure where you're fueling the attitude on where i procured your beta disk from. Maybe i'll try it out. Maybe not. Either way, i still think your interface is your saving grace, unless by trying out, you mean there's something bad about it i should know about.
I do warn: remember the OQO. Remember the Transnote.
And don't just in swinging wildly at someone because you think they're just trashing your product. By your comments you either didnt really read what i said or you read in anger and misread it. Hell, the modular core system is an idea that, if you followed up on it, would allow for you to open up to another market demoraphic like the Dell Axim X5 opened up pocket PC's to teens.
Cool you jets man, if i thought your producted sucked, i would flat out say it. Learn what constructive critism is. Anyways, i wish you the best of luck on your business endevour.
