LG have teased a new slider Windows 8 touchscreen convertible, the H160,Â that comes in at 1.06KG, a weight where an 11.6â€ 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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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…

Reported by Techfresh nearly a month ago is early information on a 7â€ ARM-based tablet from Witstech. The A81. I have a feeling that the â€˜WinCEâ€™ 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.

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 10â€. 1.5KG â€˜high-endâ€™ netbook land so itâ€™s nice to see some news on it. This time itâ€™s about the multitouch touchscreen version.

Eeek! The Kohnjinsha UMPC isn’t going to do the UMPC segment any favors if itÂ 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

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 weâ€™re in for some interesting times.

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.
