Hualu UCG501 MID looks familiar!

Posted on 22 April 2009, Last updated on 12 November 2019 by

Obviously it’s a sure-fire way to attract eyes to a product. ‘What was that? A new iPod?’ but take note of that optical mouse. When done well, these little controllers are excellent for navigating on hi-res screens.


It  looks like a UI overlay on top of Windows XP.


Hardware specs aren’t disaplyed but clearly this is going to be an Atom Menlow based device based on the size.Its quite thick but no thicker than a Viliv S5.

  • 5″  800×480 screen (touch)
  • 3G
  • BT 2.0
  • GPS
  • USB, VGA, RJ45 connectors
  • 4700mah battery (That looks like it might be sealed. One assumes a single cell at 3.7v giving 17wh. About 4hrs of active usage with a well-built 1.1Ghz/1.3Ghz Menlow platform)
  • Optical Mouse pointer

What I don’t see:

  • SD/MiniSD slot
  • Keyboard

    I think this looks wonderful.. these vendors are starting to realize they can’t tread on netbook territory..
    It has to either be pocketable, or be a netbook.. anything in between wont sell… This thing looks like a screen running windows and a mouse.. i like!

    Another close, but no cigar.

    Apart from the obvious lack of keyboard, why is it 800×480? A 5″ screen is crying out for 1024×600…

    Hrmmmm. Giant iPhone knock-off anyone? It looks great, I wonder if it will make a good tablet hackintosh! I think I see a front-facing video camera, too.

    Finally a pocketable device with a mouse pointer – but why 800×480? It also needs a bigger battery of course. Interesting choice to include the Ethernet socket!

    Haha iPhone-Samsung Omnia-MID all scrambled together :)

    very interesting, this looks like the 1st handheld device running a desktop OS thats meant to be used in portrait mode.

    as cool as this looks, isnt it amazing how manufactures ALWAYS find at least 1-way to F everything up? 800×480 screen, NO THX!!! hopefully they will upgrade it before final release.

    love that optical mouse…

    The 4.8″ 800×480 screen works just fine on my Everun; I have no complaints….

    Or at least I wouldn’t if I had a modern Atom processor in this thing (Raon Digital, are you listening?).
