Product Notes
The R2H has one of the most complete specifications yet on a UMPC. It comes with a built-in GPS, onboard VGA port, Ethernet port, camera, fingerprint scanner and great styling. No docking port on the R2H so this won't be the easiest to use as a notebook or low-end desktop replacement.

3K Razorbook 400, 7.0 inch, 907 grams (2 lbs)
Hanbit Pad, 7.0 inch, 1000 grams (2.2 lbs)
Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium, 7.0 inch, 800 grams (1.76 lbs)
1024x600 on a 7" screen is great for handheld use. The mouse is a little dissapointing (its not a synaptics pointer but more of a basic joystick) and the keyboard will take a lot of work to get used to. With the 1.3Ghz processor and Windows XP tablet edition this should be one of the most powerful UMPCs available.
Ubiquio 711 (711), 7.0 inch, 850 grams (1.87 lbs)
This is a good solid performer. 1.2Ghz CPU is fast enough to drive Vista. SD card slot, good build quality with high quality buttons and synaptics mouse pointer. Price is competitive. Slightly poor battery life of 2-2.25 hours must be considered before purchase though.
Ubiquio 702 (702), 7.0 inch, 910 grams (2.01 lbs)
We've tested a version of this device and found it to be a solid performer. We didnt find it pretty in white so our recommendation is to go for the black. Screen quality is good and the mouse pointer is very intuitive.

This is a good solid performer. 1.2Ghz CPU is fast enough to drive Vista with little lag. SD card slot, good build quality with high quality buttons and synaptics muse pointer. Price is competitive. Poor battery life of 2-2.25 hours must be considered before purchase though.
