laptop <--> handheld: best device for this transition?


there are a growing number of devices which seek to bridge the gap between the performance and workability of a laptop and the size and convience of the handheld.

i am aware of two interesting ones right now, and looking at them.

SHARP ZAURUS SL-C860

and the other, perhaps less well-known, M$ based

OQO

http://www.oqo.com


does anyone out there have any thoughts regarding this growing market - namely,

1) what device do you think performs this transition from laptop to handheld best?

&

2) where do you want improvement in these devices?

cheers
