S5 Size comparisons
If you were as desperate as I was before I got my hands on this little gem, you would have googled the S5’s dimensions (84 * 154 * 24 mm, Weight 436 g) , traced this out on an A4 paper and did a bit of survival origami to construct paper dummy version of the unit?
OK..ok, most of you wouldn’t resort to such desperate lengths as I have..so here are some pictues I have taken that compares the S5 with familiar items such as a DVD cover.
As you can see, it is indeed compact in size and a bona fide handheld device. If anyone has owned a Nokia N800 tablet device (picture above, reference site: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=280824), well, the S5 is not much more bigger and packs a full Windows O/S!
With the portable size will come ergonomic challenges..our future blog posts will detail these challenges (ie, lack of a real keyboard, small screen size etc) and what had to be done to address these.
