Remember that no named Netbook we brought you back in November of last year? Today, it got a bit more official with a name and pricing.
At just 6-inches long, .7-inches wide and .7 lbs, UMID’s mBook is almost small enough to forget that it’s in your back pocket. Under the hood is your choice of a 1.1 or 1.3Ghz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM and up to 32GB of storage courtesy of an SSD. The 4.8-inch touchscreen will surely lead to neck cramp or two, but I’m impressed with the pixel count: 1024×600. And the mBook isn’t short on connectivity or communication features. In addition to the 1.3MP webcam, its got HSDPA, Bluetooth, WiBro (Korean WiMax) and a digital TV tuner with antenna.
The mBook from UMID starts at $465, although a US or UK release have yet to be announced, if ever.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
