lol i did buy most of those things. I have viliv n5 (and s5), beos 4 retail box, kyocera echo, atrix with lapdock, and a dreamcast with network adapter and keyboard. My dad has a palm pre he got from working at HP, and he used to have the jornada and omnibook.
Like some others here I have a Viliv S5, N5, and also an S7. These are great UMPCs that I use every day. It’s too bad that Viliv went under because they were really on the right track. The N5 affords me a full Windows 7 device with a keyboard, SD slot, USB, hours of use on battery power, and slips easily into a pocket. My S5 has 3G, 128GB SSD, GPS and all day battery. Awesome stuff. Also have a couple of Raon Digital Everuns and an OQO. All are/were unique devices but price doomed UMPCs to the beta/laserdisk/DAT club. Even in the age of the iPad I get “wow that’s cool” responses.
But I DID buy many of those! I had an Amiga 2000. I had a Sega DreamCast (which died because its copy protection wasn’t robust; it had little to do with the PS2). I used BeOS and loved it. Don’t blame me!
