About a year after its launch, Get Connected have published a review on the Tablet Kiosk i7209 UMPC. Actually I only know that it was published on YouTube yesterday. Its possible that this has been aired before but its worth watching though because they present it in quite an appealing way and even show the docking station which is a really great way to work with a UMPC as a low-end desktop solution. I had the i7210 until the charging system died on me and I remember using it like I've used no other UMPC since. The dual-screen extended desktop mode was more productive than my normal 2.5Ghz desktop PC and I miss it a lot. Not as a UMPC, but as a portable workstation.

I wish there were more UMPCs available with docks. At the moment, the only UMPC devices that have real docking stations (not USB extender docks or port replicators) are the i7209, i7210 and Sony UX range. [Edit: OQO Model 02 too!] The Everun is due to get a dock soon but its not quite powerful enough and doesn't have a big enough screen to be used as well as the i7210 was. The Amtek U560 could be the first of the 2nd-gen UMPCs to have a docking station.

Anyway, as I was saying, Get Connected TV have a video of the i7209.!

About a year after its launch, Get Connected have published a review on the Tablet Kiosk i7209 UMPC. Actually I only know that it was published on YouTube yesterday. Its possible that this has been aired before but its worth watching though because they present it in quite an appealing way and even show the docking station which is a really great way to work with a ultra mobile PC as a low-end desktop solution. I had the i7210 until the charging system died on me and I remember using it like I’ve used no other ultra mobile PC since. The dual-screen extended desktop mode was more productive than my normal 2.5Ghz desktop PC and I miss it a lot. Not as a UMPC, but as a portable workstation.
