Not the most attractive of UMPCs but one of the more usable ones. The touch-pointer and keyboard help to make the learning curve short. Some fan noise. Fantastic screen.

WiBrain B1L alternatives

Eking M5, 5.0 inch, 440 grams (0.97 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.
Fujitsu UH900, 5.6 inch, 500 grams (1.1 lbs)
Fujitsu have dropped the convertible screen seen on the U820, have increased the width (bigger keys), reduced the depth and thickness. Weight is down by 100gm. Mouse pointer and mouse buttons are included for on-the-move usage.
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.
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.
E-King i1, 4.8 inch, 500 grams (1.1 lbs)
With 1.33Ghz Atom processor, SD card slot, the i1 is going to be a good step up from the Wibrain B1 that it is following. Ergonomics on the B1 are excellent (the touch-pad making control very easy) and if Wibrain reach the their stated target of 6-hours browsing time, it's going to be an excellent mobile device.
OQO Model 2 Plus, 5.0 inch, 450 grams (0.99 lbs)
Wibrain i1 HSDPA, 4.8 inch, 500 grams (1.1 lbs)
With an updated case styling, 1.1 or 1.33Ghz Atom processor, hsdpa and the SD card slot, the i1 is going to be a good big step up from the B1. Ergonomics on the B1 are excellent (the touch-pad making control very easy) and if Wibrain reach the their stated target of 6-hours browsing time, it's going to be an excellent mobile device. Wibrain have always been competitively priced too.
Raon Digital Everun S8S, 4.8 inch, 460 grams (1.01 lbs)
We like the Everun! Flash disk, auto screen rotate, good screen brightness and the ability to upgrade with HSDPA or EVDO. Prices are very competitive and there's a good range of accessories. Class-leading battery life. On the negative side, the Everun has problems decoding ost video formats apart from MPEG-4. This is no desktop replacement but performs very well and is highly recommended as a mobile internet device.
Wibrain B1 SJ, 4.8 inch, 512 grams (1.13 lbs)
One of the more easy-to-use UMPCs. The touch-pointer and keyboard help to make the learning curve short. Fantastic screen and very good value.
