UMID UMPC (Mini-Netbook)

UMID Mini-NetbookIn size its rival would be the Nintendo DS, but in function it can rival some decent laptops. With 1GB of RAM, a 1.3 mega-pixel webcam, a mini-USB port, wireless connectivity (WIMAX, WiBro, HSDPA), and a card reader, the UMID is a formidable netbook.  It probably would not be considered a netbook, though.  Like the IMOVIO iKIT handtop computer, it’s more of a mini-netbook.  You could almost call it a pocket-sized laptop.  It’s screen is 4.8", touch screen enabled, and runs at 1024×600 resolution.  The device is powered by Intel’s Atom processor @ 1.33 GHz. It packs quite a punch for such a small device. Some sources on the Internet claim the mini-netbook can support Linux, Windows XP, and even Windows Vista.

The casing looks great, even though there hasn’t been any word on the exact dimensions. It almost looks like the new PDAs or stylish cell phones, but a little bigger. It’s not available outside of Korea yet, but we’re just excited as everyone else. Pricing information should be available soon.

  1. It really is time for MS to release a Windows MID edition.

  2. Wow, that’s too small for me. Now it becomes handy to work anywhere, though. :D

  3. does it have a USB port?

  4. I wonder how small the keyboard is, and how usable it would be? And 1024×600 on a 4.8″ screen, do you need a magnifying glass to use it!

  5. That is a great topics to discuss why not check my gadgets in my website.

  6. 4.8″ and 1024×600 resolution?? I think is not valid to read small letters

  7. Compared to the negative comments on Engadget, I’m really happy I found this site and, users that aren’t stoners.

    Greta article, very promising.

  8. Were can I get 1 how much are they fast what colors do they come in??

  9. The screen size is small but the resolution is high. Nice. I thought screen that size will have a resolution of 800×600 max. It’s portable alright, but not that functional enough. I’ll still go for netbooks with screen size that ranges from 8″ to 10.2″.
