seems useless to me really, unless you're always in a wifi hotspot that is. most places don't offer it for free without some kind of security. and the fact that it isn't a cellphone kind of turns me off.

seems like a good idea, but i don't see it working out too well.

that's where i first saw it is youtube.

seems like too much of a niche market to me. i like the concept, don't get me wrong, but the functionality seems a little off base for some reason. if the price is decent, it would be a great alternative for a kid instead of a cell phone i think... especially with the integrated skype... and opera is a helluva browser, i have it on my 9300.

well theres two ways that you can do it.. you can hook it directly to a computer and share it

control panel>printers and faxes>right click your printer thats set up on computer and click share
then on any other computer just go to printers and faxes, click on set up a new printer, then search your network for printers and you should find it. the rest of it from there is pretty self explanitory

the second way is you can buy a device that connects directly into the router and then you connect your printer to that and it will assign the printer an ip address and then just search for it on the network the same way you would do in the first way to do it

just a note of caution nation, setting your computer up for file & printer sharing opens up a huge security hole for anyone else to get into your computer.
as in they can print off my printer also? doesnt the network security prevent that?
