The Norands were mentioned on the ePods bbs a while back - it was also sold under another name Sharp Capernicus, I think?). I looked into them at the time. I had not heard of a new supply of these; indeed the eBay listing does not state that they are new and does say that they are sold "as-is" although working.
This is not really a "CF-01 killer," but perhaps another alternative. The units are a good 50% heavier than the ePods and the Cf-01, as well as larger. The 6622 is roughly comparable in specs to the Panasonic, better in some areas (has sound built-in) worse in others (no full-featured docking station; rather, a stand). The more expensive one is a true Pentium, and has 2 battery packs. (Interestingly, its specs say it has 16 mb of RAM, but the eBay ad says 32.) This one might offer a worthwhile trade-off compared to the CF-01, as its Pentium processor does give it something to justify its larger size/extra weight. The cheaper one seems to offer little to justify that sacrifice, particularly if it is also not new and sold "as-is."
I'd call them worthy contenders, perhaps, but I think "CF-01 killer" would be quite an exaggeration.
