Hitachi's Flora-ie 55mi is effectively a cross between a notebook, a handheld and a cell phone, reports CNET.com.. The device--which looks like a
notebook screen with a frame--hooks up directly to the Internet and is used to search Web content or run applications, similar to a
standard PC. However, people can use a pen to input data like a Palm. Additionally, it contains a mobile phone interface for calls.
