Sharp Netwalker

The price could be a little high on this one at launch but it competes well with the UMID M1 UMPC. Battery life of 10 hours is a real bonus. Combine this with a Mifi and you're good to go! On the Ascii.co.jp video (see below) we're impressed with the load time (10-seconds for ascii.co.jp on a Firefox browser) and the embedded Flash video.

Sharp Netwalker alternatives

Sony Tablet P, 5.5 inch, 370 grams (0.82 lbs)
Eking M5, 5.0 inch, 440 grams (0.97 lbs)
UMID mbook SE, 4.8 inch, 366 grams (0.81 lbs)
Psixpda Psixpda, 4.8 inch, 420 grams (0.93 lbs)
A productive and usable design hampered by relatively short battery life. Mouse pad (hidden on right hand side of frame) is very usable when using the device in two-handed 'thumbing' mode. Keyboard very good for two-handed thumbing.
UMID BZ, 4.8 inch, 363 grams (0.8 lbs)
Solves all of the major issues of the original M1 and adds a useful mouse pointer. With battery life of over 4hrs this is now a serious contender as a productive, pocketable UMPC.
XPPhone XPPhone, 4.8 inch, 400 grams (0.88 lbs)
Early pricing (local, China) is said to be the equivalent of $400 but specifications are not known. If build quality can be kept high, this 400gm basic UMPC/Phone could find some customers. AMD processor is not very powerful but reaches full web speeds similar to very low-end Atom-based devices. 3D support is poor. Given a fast SSD, this could reach acceptable office application speeds.
Viliv N5, 4.8 inch, 399 grams (0.88 lbs)
Lives up to the pre-release hype. Great build quality, fast SSD, good keyboard and battery life. It's expensive when compared to the UMID BZ so you'll have to 'value' that extra memory and build quality. Base model, surprisingly, comes with no video out.
Eking S515, 4.8 inch, 420 grams (0.93 lbs)
A productive and usable design hampered by relatively short battery life. Mouse pad (hidden on right hand side of frame) is very usable when using the device in two-handed 'thumbing' mode.
Kohjinsha PA, 4.8 inch, 400 grams (0.88 lbs)
Tainell T500, 5.0 inch, 450 grams (0.99 lbs)
With very similar appearance and features to the Viliv S5, this may have to compete on price. No information on the on-screen-keyboard at this stage. Windows7 may be the solution here.
