#K48 dénouement

OK, how did I fare? Will I buy one of these? Here were my specifications:

  1. costs no more than EUR 800 – YES USD 829 for the top of the line 64GB+3G
  2. I see this as a companion to my main MBP, which means some clever synchronization software would be a boon – NO
  3. runs MAC OS X (goes without saying, you say? but is this a big phone or a small computer?) – NO
  4. has 3G connectivity (as this rumor says) – YES, as an option, but 3G models are unlocked, so maybe you can just plug in your microSIM and bang ! off you go !!!
  5. runs Keynote – YES, albeit a special version – but it can run existing KN presentations
  6. has a video out interface to connect it to a projector – YES
  7. has WiFi (/n pleeeeez) and bluetooth for peripherals – YES
  8. reads e-books formats – YES, ePub, lots of publishers on board
  9. weighs no more than 800 grams – YES, 1.5 pounds = 680 grams
  10. has at least 3 hrs battery life – YES, Steve says up to 10 hrs, which probably means 6
  11. has at least 200 GB HD –NO, but 64GB flash is reasonable for a second machine (SD slots? don’t think so…)

No brainer.
