  1. Come on Om, that was grossly unfair. I should have at least got some credit for:

    a) Predicting in your post on Dec 8, 2005 that something like this was a possibility now. Link

    b) I posted an article on 6th about this phone on my blog [Link] linking your post where I made the comment.

    I simply can’t believe that it escaped your notice. Now, of all the things, Engadget gets mentioned in your post.

    Think, think, think.


  2. I am not a patent lawyer. But as I understand it, Jonty has about a year to file the patent from December 8th; of course Sony may be able to demonstrate prior art.

  3. Sounds neat for about 5 seconds and then you realize you are likely to want/need to use your mouse while you’re on the phone.

    Lesson: single-purpose products are better.

  4. raveets right

    seems practical, but then impractical

    wait let me plug in another mouse while i take this call!


    would be good for laptops though…use the touchpad while on call.

    i think this is one for the techno geek that lkes to show off.
