--- The Ultraman is still pretty alive and kicking. Of course, IBM is not very enthusiastic, but they don't lose too much money too maintain a small but steady flow into the market. Actually, the Ultramans are being built by Matsushita Kotobuki, absolutely no overhead to IBM Japan! On the contrary, the Ultraman had a great resurgence recently. Because IBM started selling a clever DOS-based web browser "Web Boy" which runs perfectly well on it. No need to install Windows using a Type III card anymore. You can use the slot for a quick modem. Anyway, the cheap "Web Boy" was a big hit.---
Mobilis at http://www.volksware.com/mobilis/ is a terrific magazine. Its the first place I'd ever heard of the PC110.
As the PC110 is still in production, its no wonder that there is finally some third-party upgrades like this modem being made available. I just wish someone would sell them in Australia, so I could play with one and compare it to the Libretto. I finally got to play with a Libretto, Win95 is disgusting on a small screen, but I hate win95 anyway. I adapted to the mousepointer thingy quick enough, is it the same mechanism on the PC110?
The Libretto is distributed in Australia with an Australian warranty, which is a plus, but costs over $3300 which is too much.
