Welcome to Reviews OnLine: Saint Song Espresso
Saint Song Espresso
Pocket PC
by Rick Smith (November 16, 2000)


In a space slightly larger than a 1960's transistor radio, SaintSong has managed to cram all the functionality of an ENTIRE desktop PC. The Espresso is not only decked out with desktop-class RAM, Celeron processor, and hard drive, but also connectors for VGA out, TV out, mouse, keyboard, 2 USB ports, earphone and microphone.

If that’s not enough, SaintSong has included a TouchPad on the face of the unit, so all you need is a monitor and keyboard and your all set. In fact, due to its small size, it could easily be mistaken for you new “mouse”. Even a slimline CD-ROM drive is larger than the Espresso computer.

Instead of just carrying around a portable storage device or removable media, you can carry an entire computer INCLUDING the media!
