If Apple would ever decide to build a new Apple Newton, it could looks like this new Pocket PC from Korean ODM Pidion. The BM-200 called Pocket PC Phone Edition seriously reminds me on an iPod.
Beside of being a design beauty (at least on the front; on the side and back the designers seems to lost the interest to make it a design-flagship), also the features are quite impressive and mostly state of the art since it includes: Windows Mobile CE 5.0, CDMA radio (which means we will not see it outside Korea anyway), WiFi, Bluetooth, a 520 MHz Intel PXA270 CPU, 64 MB RAM, 128 MB ROM, miniSD 2 megapixel camera with photo-light and a 2.8" touch screen which supports QVGA with up to 260.000 colors. All this, packed into 61 x 119 x 19 mm only which is slightly larger then a 60 GB-iPod!

The BM-200 should be available in two colors: black and white.
There were no information given about a release date or price but well, this looks like a Pocket PC I would like to use as well but please - improve the design of the back; this looks way too cheap.
