Judie’s Gear Diary – 2005-03-24


I feel like I have been visited by the HP iPAQ 4700 Case Fairy! Coming up in my queue I have the Vaja HP01 Classic, the E&B Slipper PAQ and…drumroll please…the Sena case that accepts the extended battery! Reviews coming soon! :0)

In other news: the Sony PSP has been released, and in my West Texas town it barely managed to stir the dust. Reprinted from The San Angelo Standard Times, “Local PSP debut fizzles

Electronics retailers across San Angelo were told by their corporate offices that Thursday’s sales would compare to the day after Thanksgiving, the busiest shopping day of the year.

With the midnight Thursday release of Sony’s latest contraption, the PlayStation Portable or PSP, retailers geared up for hords of eager buyers camping in front of their stores to nab the $249.99 gadget.

It didn’t happen.

“It was nothing like a Harry Potter release,” said Matt Horton, a music associate at Hastings Books, Music & Videos, which held a midnight release party that was attended by three people. “It’s not going as well as we thought it would.”
What's the general consensus on the PSP? Did you line up anywhere to get yours? Or will you even be getting one?

And one last item – I have added a section to my gear diary that allows you to download the VGA Pocket PC Device Theme I have created and am currently running on my iPAQ. I'll warn you in advance that my sense of humor can sometimes be macabre, but I think many of you will appreciate it. ;0)
