Is Arduboy the pocket PDA of the 21st century?

I got this the other day and its form factor instantly made me think about the Rex 6000. So I thought I'd take some pictures to see how they looked side by side.

They're very similar actually.

About the same thickness overall, although, as you can see here the Arduboy is a little smaller.

Obviously the Arduboy doesn't have the same kinds of interface as a Rex 6000. It doesn't have replaceable batteries for a start. 

And it doesn't have a PCMCIA interface either or course, although it would be awesome if it did.

Lastly it doesn't really have an OS like the Rex although it is, being Arduino based, completely programmable and that's pretty cool too.
