LG H160 Slider Teased. 2.3lbs, 11.6″, Clover Trail

Posted on 22 October 2012

LG have teased a new slider Windows 8 touchscreen convertible, the H160,  that comes in at 1.06KG, a weight where an 11.6” multitouch slider could start to be useful. LG haven’t given specifications but given the weight and the claimed 10hrs of battery life, we’re confident that this will be Clover-Trail based. Update: Confirmed Clover Trail

Kupa X11 offers 54Wh Capacity Dual-Mode Tablet in under 1kg

Posted on 29 August 2011

At IFA next week. Kupa will be showing the Kupa X11, a 10″ Oaktrail (1.5Ghz Atom) based tablet that is said to offer 10 hours of battery life. Always suspicious of battery life claims, I checked out the specs and after seeing the huge 54Wh battery am fairly confident that it could indeed reach 10 hours of light usage. The battery doesn’t bring major weight issues either as the product […]

Pixel Qi Screen Upgrade Available To All

Posted on 02 July 2010

I’ve long been a fan of the Pixel Qi screen technology, its ability to work in direct sunlight is something us tech folk have been waiting on for a long time. At Computex 2010 Pixel Qi showed us the technology compared with a Apple iPad and the results are stunning. JKK also got some time with the people at Pixel Qi to show us more how the technology works and […]

Long-Awaited UMID M2 UMPC appears as Onkyo BX in Japan.

Posted on 10 December 2009

Akihabara seemed to have missed the fact that the Sotec (Onkyo) BX 407A4 is actually a device that many of us have been waiting for. It’s a rebadged UMID M2. Or Kohjinsha device. Or Inventec device. We’re not sure who the design owner is right now but if Inventec are manufacturing for Onkyo as we suspect then it probably means that the M2 is ready to go. About time! The […]

New Fujitsu UMPC adds Multitouch, Reduces Weight. (Updated: Price, full specs)

Posted on 03 December 2009

The UH900 UMPC (or ‘handheld PC; as Fujitsu are calling it) has just been announced. Full specs aren’t available but from what we’ve gleened from the press release, this looks like a very VERY interesting pro-mobile device. Wider, thinner, lighter, multitouch and more…

Interesting A81, 7” Tablet from Witstech. Cortex. Capacitive. Coming with Android? (Updated with video)

Posted on 06 November 2009

Reported by Techfresh nearly a month ago is early information on a 7” ARM-based tablet from Witstech. The A81. I have a feeling that the ‘WinCE’ specification put a lot of people off but it might be worth taking a closer look as it supposedly has a capacitive touchscreen and runs on an unspecified ARM Cortex A8 core.

ASUS EeePC T91MT (Multitouch) pre-order details

Posted on 02 November 2009

The Eee PC T91 is one of the few netbooks we really track closely now at UMPCPortal. Most others have drifted off into the forest of 10”. 1.5KG ‘high-end’ netbook land so it’s nice to see some news on it. This time it’s about the multitouch touchscreen version.

Kohjinsha PA series UMPC pricing starts high.

Posted on 24 October 2009

Eeek! The Kohnjinsha UMPC isn’t going to do the UMPC segment any favors if it  turns up looking like that, for over $800! I’m usually very positive about any UMPC entering the market but I’m finding it very difficult with this one. Mouse pointer and stereo speakers are nice but surely there’s a prettier way to do it? Via: Kohjinsha PA series available in November.Source: Wow-Pow


LBook T9. 8.9” ultra-thin Multitouch Tablet planned for March 2010

Posted on 07 October 2009

It looks like Windows 7 and some invisible tabletPC marketing force is spurring people to make web pads left right and center. The Ebook reports that the Lbook T9 will be coming to the market next year for an interesting retail price of $350-$375. If they really can achieve that than we’re in for some interesting times.

New Kohjinsha PA series convertible MID/UMPC

Posted on 07 October 2009

In interesting device popped up at JKKMobile yesterday. A new Kohjinsha device that, according to JKK, could be based on the existing UMID M1. It looks a lot deeper than the UMID, about the same size as a netwalker. Should perform faster than the netwalker too. It’s based on the Menlow platform and will be running XP.
