Mission Impossible 3 gizmo: TyTN/K-JAM form factor

In case you didn't notice, in Mission Impossible 3 the Tom Cruise character uses a PDA with a form factor just like the HTC TyTN and K-JAM, with a keyboard that slides out the long edge of the PDA. If you look closely, you'll see that it looks like it has three rows of keys above the space bar but no row of number keys, just like on the TyTN and K-JAM.

ADDED COMMENT: As the first commenter points out, the device in the movie looks just like the OQO PDA-sized Windows XP computer. But I'm leaving the post here, because the movie pictures still show the greatness of the TyTN/K-JAM form factor.

To me, it looks more like an OQO sub-notebook... That thing is too expensive, though :(

I agree, now that I look at it the movie device is definitely modeled after the OQO. Even has the circular enter key and the rectangle cornered look.

But don't go being too jealous, the OQO has no cellular connectivity. No cellphone calls, no data connectivity when away from a Wi-Fi hotspot.

That is an OQO. The OQO 2+ is out in may and has Broadband 3G GOBI cellular connectivity. It also has a touchscreen.

But what is the cable he uses to hack the securiti network?

Cool article you got here. I'd like to read more about that matter. The only thing it would also be great to see on this blog is a few pictures of such devices as gps jammer.
