So it's a dead-end device that will never again be updated, and they have a surplus they need to get rid of. I wonder if, like the PAC Mate, we'll still see these things being sold five more years down the line. Doesn't seem like a very good deal to me though. If you want a device of this type, the only ones still relevant seem to be the HIMS Sense lines. Given that Windows CE is dead though, I'm not going to even guess how much longer that will hold.
