So whatâ€™s my verdict? Iâ€™d earlier fondled the Sony UX several times (but never blogged about it). Between the UX and the Model 02, Iâ€™d take the Model 02. But Iâ€™m not going by specs or price. Iâ€™m making this judgment solely based on each unitâ€™s size and keyboard. The Model 02 is more pocketable and its keyboard just makes the UXâ€™s keyboard a bigger laughingstock than it already is.
Now, if you want to go by screen, I think the UX beats the Model 02. The UX has a true touchscreen. If Iâ€™m understanding the OQO brochure correctly, the Model 02 still requires a Tablet PC-like special stylus. That prohibits using a fingertip to quickly tap an icon on the Model 02â€™s screen (as I found out when trying to launch IE!).
