I remember seeing AirMagnet for the first time at Networld+Interop in 2002 and being impressed as hell. Not only was it (and still is) the best example a of low-bulk, hi-content user interface on a PDA-sized screen, but the tricks it could do seemed just amazing. But somehow I never managed to get my hands on one to check it out...until now.
AirMagnet's recent Version 3.0 release prompted the company to embark on a fresh push to get reviewers to help keep the product on prospective buyers' radar screens. This time, I managed to make the reviewer list, and was glad I did.
