Another well specified clamshell-style UMPC. Slightly too wide for thumb typing but wide enough for a touch-typing experience. 1.8Ghz, 2GB RAM and SSD helps with speed and this should make quite a rugged travel computer too.

HP Slate 2, 8.9 inch, 690 grams (1.52 lbs)
The HP Slate 2 is a Windows 7 Tablet powered by an Intel Atom Z670 clocked at 1.5 GHz. It has up to 64GB mSATA Storage and should last with its 2-cell (30WHr) battery up to 7.5 hours. With the possibility to add the Tablet to the optional dock one can have 2 more USB 2.0 ports plus the ability to extend the screen via HDMI to another device.
Sony Tablet S, 9.4 inch, 595 grams (1.31 lbs)
The Tablet S features a screen technology that Sony calls "TruBlack" and they say it enhances colors and darkens the blacks. Chippy got his hands on the Tablet S at IDF and immediately noted that the screen looks very good. The Tablet S is quite light at 595 grams and the design should make it easier to hold in one hand than tablets of a similar weight.
Cisco Cius, 7.0 inch, 522 grams (1.15 lbs)
Netbook Navigator Nav 7, 7.0 inch, 590 grams (1.3 lbs)
A 7" UMPC built on Atom fills a requirement for a number of markets but take note, this is the older Atom platform. (Z5XX) with the slower GPU (200Mhz compared to 400Mhz on the Z6xx series.) It's strange to see a device like this without any form of video out. The rear-mounted touch panel and mouse buttons should improve Windows usage although we would want to test that before recommending a buy. Weight seems acceptable - 550gms
LG G-Slate, 8.9 inch, 621 grams (1.37 lbs)
Toshiba Libretto W100 (W105-L251 PLW10U-00201V ), 7.0 inch, 699 grams (1.54 lbs)
A new and interesting design from Toshiba. Dual capacitative touchscreens and some well-integrated keyboard software make this a very interesting choice in the UMPC sector. Heat could be a problem and battery life with the small battery down to 2hrs. High-performance CPU should drive Windows 7 touch and muti-touch features well. Premium price.
HP Slate (500), 8.9 inch, 700 grams (1.54 lbs)
Great progress for small form-factor slates. The 1.86Ghz CPU coupled with 2GB of RAM and, if fast, the 64GB SSD should drive WIndows 7 well. Capacative and Digitiser screen, 680gm and a great price means this is a leading UMPC right now.
Kohjinsha SK3 (SK3KX06GA), 7.0 inch, 720 grams (1.59 lbs)
Viliv X70 EX, 7.0 inch, 660 grams (1.46 lbs)
Samsung Q1EX, 7.0 inch, 648 grams (1.43 lbs)
