UMID SE is the UMID BZ With Twice the RAM Faster CPU, and WiFi N

Updated on 31 July 2015 by

umid mbook se UMID Korea now officially has the mbook SE (Special Edition) listed on their site. The mbook SE is just like the mbook BZ [Portal page] that Chippy thoroughly covered, but it has twice the RAM at 1GB and replaces the BZ’s 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z515 CPU with the Atom 530 running at 1.6GHz. The wireless has also seen a slight augmentation; it now supports WiFi N, in addition to B/G. Aside from these differences (and a white paintjob instead of silver/black one), the BZ and the SE are identical, optical mouse pointer and all.

The mbook SE is selling for $568 in Korea, and thanks to Pocketables, we have confirmation that the UMID mbook SE will eventually be available in the US through Dynamism.

We’ve fired up the UMID mbook SE tracking page in our device portal and it’s got the full device specs if you are interested.

    Am trying to get one for testing. Compared to the Viliv N5 it will probably be easier for thumbing and have a brighter screen. 1.6Ghz + 1GB (on Windows XP) will bring a huge bump in multi-tasking capability BUT – If they don’t update the SSD to be slightly faster, there will still be the occasional problem when the SSD can’t keep up with demand.

    No 3G is a huge mistake. I mean, this is supposed to be a mobility device right? so it should have a mobility internet connection built it, shouldnt it?

    I don’t get it when hardware designers overlook these crucial details because they can easily be a deal breaker.

    It’s not really a ‘white paintjob’ is it???…other white UMID’s were white plastic not painted….

    If the price stays below $600 US then I’d overlook the toy like white appearance of the device since the hardware specs are fairly decent. The only thing the N5 has over the UMID SE seems to be external appearances. Since I don’t intend on making my UMPC a fashion statement then looks < specs.

    I cannot tell from the picture – is the optical mouse still sunk in the frame or did they fix it to be flat ?

  11. Timmy says:

    Looks sunken in to me. Too bad for that.

  12. Neill says:

    Just looked at the new model on the makers website. Seems the SE model is cheaper than the BZ, I would think it would be the other way around.

    Analysis of current MID in China Market!

    A full survey has been made by our marketing and engineering team on current MID China market, below comment will show how their performance will be.

    There are mainly 4 solutions in MID industry in current China market:
    1. VIA8505 Based solution 7 inch
    2. RockChip2808 Based Solution 7 inch and 10 inch
    3. Samsung S3C6410 Based solution 7 inch
    4. Marvell 88AP166 Based solution 7 inch with GPS(only model with internal GPS module)

    1. VIA8505 Based solution
    CPU VIA8505 400MHz
    Memory/ Storage 128 MB/2 GB, Android’s softwares occupy very little space
    System Andriod 1.7, 2X faster than Win CE
    Language Multilingual
    Input Method Android keyboard&Google Pinyin input method
    Touchscreen Full mirror style, Resistive type touch screen high sensitive
    Built-in touch panel,support USB port
    Display screen Size 7″ PANEL
    Resolution 800*480 WVGA

    This solution is a low end one, with a only 400mHz CPU, it’s speed are not pleasing at all, also, after testing, the performance is near unacceptable, the carftwork of housing in details is not make it like a good electronics, the LCD surface is uneven if you make a touch on it, 2ndly, the battery performance is nearly unacceptable, the battery will get very hot within only 20 sec after you powered on. The speed is very limited due to a Via based 400Mhz CPU, but price is lowest among all solutions.
    Rate: buy for a few month and throw away

    2. RockChip2808 Based Solution 7 inch and 10 inch
    CPU RockChip2808 (ARM926EJC+DSP)
    processor speed 600MHZ
    Chipset rockchip
    Display 7.0 ” LED panel touch screen:800*480
    System Memory 128M SDROM
    NandFlash 2G-16G
    Sound System built in speaker(1x1w)
    I/O Ports 1 USB2.0 ports (OTG), 1 USB for 3G
    1 3.5mm stereo headphone jack
    1 DC-in jack
    1 TF cardreader
    Network Wireless LAN 802.11
    WIFI& OPTION:3G(WCDMA/TDSCDMA/EVDO) external 3G
    PC camera 1.3 Mega Pixels
    Power Battery type Lithium-ion 2500mAh
    Battery life and worktime :Up to 4 hours of surfing the web using 3G data network

    This solution is a midium one,what’s interesting is the CHIP are China made, it’s performance could be saying stable, the best advante for this solution is it support high resolution video, it support 720P, comparing in all solutions, it gets the best video playing performance.
    But currently not have GPS built in. But it is the only one who have made 10 inch housing.

    3. Samsung S3C6410 Based solution 7 inch
    ChipSet: Samsung S3C6410(ARM11/700MHz)
    Storrage: 1G Flash Internal
    Removable MicroSD (up to 32GB)
    Display: 7″T FT LCD(WVGA 800*480)
    Toucher Screen
    WiFi : WiFi (IEEE 802.11 b/g)
    3G : WCDMA Module Internal(Customize Model)
    GPS : GPS Navigation Module Internal(Customize Model)
    G Sensor: G Sensor Internal(Customize Model)
    FM : FM Reception and Transmitting(Customize Model)
    TV Out: Composite Video OUT
    Audio: Stereo Speaker/Microphone Internal
    3.5mm Hi-Fi Headphones External Port
    USB Port: USB HOST/USB 2.0 OTG(Mini)
    Battery: 1800 mAh Li-Polymer Battery
    Power: 2.5W, Work 5 Hours
    Dimension: 185* 120 * 13 (L*W*H) mm
    Weight: 0.38 kg

    This solution is based on samsung module, which has been reconized as a stable solution, it’s CPU is bit faster than rockchip,other feature pretty like rockchip.

    4. Marvell 88AP166 Based solution
    This solution accounts for highest solution and best performance.
    With a 800mhz CPU, it gains a pretty good speed in using it, another feature is quite different from the other 3: due to not using any PET layer on LCD surface, it has better touching experience than other 3 solutions, what’s more interesting is it has GPS moudule built in(ST-Erisson GNS7560). it is expecting to be on market at beginning of July, very expecting.
