|Seen between ATL and SFO

On my flight Tuesday from Atlanta to San Francisco I noticed a woman on the other side of the aisle using a PDA. Nothing unusual about that, except that it was an Apple PDA. And no, I am not talking about a 15-year-old Newton. It had a similar look as an iPhone or iPod Touch, but with a larger form-factor.
The woman was checking what appeared to be her calendar appointments. I watched her scroll both horizontally (by day) and vertically (by time). At one point the PDA was at “home” and I saw probably a dozen icons representing different programs or services.
I have read rumors about such a device, but this is the first time I actually saw one. Of course it could be just a prototype that will never reach market. Time will tell.
