Kohjinsha SC3. First retail Menlow device out of the door.

Updated on 11 November 2019 by

There it is! The first ever retail Menlow-based device to be unboxed. It’s Atom, but not as the Netbook-fans know it! Silverthorne and Poulsbo enable some serious notebook midgetry. Wow-Pow blog picked one up from Conics.net (which I think are one and the same people) and made a presentation video. It looks great. Smaller than any 7" notebook so far. Check out the video and then hop over to the site where there’s said to be some review action going on soon. How will Vista perform? Whats the battery life? Is it soft or hard-touch screen? Will Poulsbo really be able to support HD video? etc etc etc.

More information on the SC3 here.

The SC3 is launching tomorrow and we’re due to have one shipped straight over from Japan. I can hardly wait!

    I really “need: this one too, next to my Sharp WS016SH :D

    Chippy: Would you like any reviews for umpcportal when I receive my WS016SH/SC3 ?

    well, now this looks lovely.. the fact that it can be upgraded to 2GB (according to wow-pow blog) makes it more than interesting. unfortunately my hopes for a speedy processor are quite low… I hope that they make one with a faster processor and embedded 3G for pro-mobile users
    and if it has a touchscreen similar to the fujitsu P1610/20 I would definitely be more than interested

    I keep saying I don’t need a 7″ UMPC (5″ is far more optimal for what I want it for).

    But this looks lovely. And at $1050 to import it is very tempting… (+ potential import taxes of course)

    Wow, now I finally realize how small this device is.
    If performance is ok, I`ll definitely get one!

  6. Marc says:

    So an express card slot can take a 3G modem? If yes, are they getting affordable yet and work OK with Vista?

  7. TareX says:

    wow… speechless…

    It’s just too expensive! Any chance a cheaper one lands in the US?
