Pros:

  • Eightinch touchscreen, rich collection of free widgets, inexpensive.
  • The Infocast weaves Web apps, digital photos, and streaming audio and video into an affordable, tablet-esque superscreen.
  • Well-designed user interface. Bright, responsive touch-screen. Can store up to 2GB of media. Intuitive, useful alarm clock. Strong integration of outside apps into menu system.

Cons:

  • Crappy speakers, resistive (versus capacitive) touchscreen.
  • With all its features, the Infocast isn't for the technologically timid. Its sheer size makes it awkward for use as an alarm clock.
