We can’t say this its old school plasticky looks are exactly grabbing our gonads of pleasure, but the new Pepper Pad 3 certainly manages to pack in a fair bit of functionality.
Billed as being neither a laptop or a PDA, the Linux-powered “handheld media computer” invites comparisons with the Nokia 770 tablet, although there’s far more going on underneath its (sizeable) hood.

We were recently invited to the launch of the HTC Touch phone – a new slimline WM6 phone sporting ‘TouchFLO’ touchscreen technology – and the assembled herd of head honchos told us that HTC was hoping to steal some of Apple’s thunder ahead of the release of their (over) hyped iPhone.
