    Default Best hardware to trade on live events?

    I started with 15.4" laptop via GPRS on soccer matches, didn´t like it so much with everybody around looking at the screen and doing questions everytime. Then proved a 10" laptop, more discrete, but still center of attention. Best system to trade on live events? any experiences with mobiles, palm...It`s important you can run a soft in it to do the trades. Another way I´m studyng is bluetooth conexion with small computer on a bag and mobile device on your hand, any ideas?

    yup but the vps-betfair delay is that small it is pretty much inconsequential

    I think the way to go would be something on your phone with a simple back and lay button.

    So you set it up specifically for a purpose beforehand and then could even make it look like something else.

    Another option would be maybe a device like this:

    If it wasn't for physics and law enforcement I'd be unstoppable!

    I know another API vendor is to release an Iphone App in the near future, this however will use the free api! provided you have good 3g it shouldn't be to bad though!



    Other than that I'd go with Leon's suggestion! I have arbed in the past with a friend sat in the local bookies and me sat at the PC watching BF

    Nice! These are 2 interesting options, problem with fisrt is to find a program for mobile that works with BF API and calculates automatic trades, for this purpose I only know betfair mobile program and lite.betfair page that are so simples. That PDA looks very cool, like other umpc and table PC.
    Still searching. Thank you all for the responses , it open to me many ideas and combinations.
