    Default windows CE touchscreen

    just saw this on the maplin website. Seems quite cheap to me just under 80 pounds for a touch screen. I guess it could make a good HA terminal

    The last time I wrote some web pages for windows ce I found the default browser to be awful (worse than Internet explorer 6).

    However there is a version of the opera browser (for free) that should work on the device instead.

    My experience suggests to keep away from CE based systems - they are a cut down version of what is a messy operating system. You are better off sticking with a full blown XP system - while it does have its share of problems there is a better chance that you can get your projects to work without too many problems!

    Price is now just under 70.

    I was on the verge of an impulse buy, having pictured myself with a pseudo Crestron-like terminal in my hands. But then I found that similar WinCE-based GPS devices are actually cheaper, also with the possibility of installing (via hacks) apps on unlike this non-standard one. And of course that can be used as a sat nav too.

    So I'll give this a miss now... unless there's a 8" version!

    Often wondered about those CE based GPS devices one of the firms I use from time to time sells loads of them they call them GPS Navigators .

    Save your money on the maplin device.

    I got one in December and it's pretty much useless unless your sitting directly on top of a wifi router.

    I could go on and on but I won't.
