UMID BZ details, videos and links to articles and gallery in the Product Database.
There’s a review and video of the UMID BZ coming just as soon as I receive the missing power cable from UMID (due in a few days) but in the meantime, I’ve added it to the database and finished a photo shoot. If that’s enough to tip you over the edge then Dynamism is the place you need to look next.
They’ve got the 16GB SSD model in for just $549 which is a relief considering the early pricing indicators and if you order now, you’ll get the VGA adaptor thrown in for free.
In my hours with the BZ at CES a few weeks ago it was clear that they’ve done a good job improving the casing. It’s sturdy, well finished and opens up much wider than before. The optical mouse isn’t as nice as some I’ve tried as the recess tends to feel awkward but as before, the touchscreen is nice and responsive. You’ll need to optimize Windows XP for that 1024×600 screen but that’s not a major issue.
Expect some videos from me over the next week. So far I don’t see any showstoppers. Oh, and by the way, that competitor, the Viliv N5 won’t be available until March so if you need a 4.8 inch clamshell with XP and lon battery life now, this is your baby.

I’ve just uploaded a bunch of images of the Eking S515 including some comparison shots with other UMPCs and slider devices. It’s interesting to see that the original Everun is exactly that same size as the Eking S515 but provides about double the battery life. The Eking S515 is slightly faster and has a better keyboard but try using it in portrait mode!
I’ve included some screenshot images so that you can see how much information you can get on a 4.8 inch screen. Remember, higher resolution doesn’t mean more space. The physical size of a font has to be the same on every resolution in order to be readable.
And here’s my favorite image.
Full photo set available in the Gallery.

Thanks to Mobilx for the loan of the review device.

Some of you know that I’m working on a full review of the Archos 5 Internet Tablet. It’s turning into a huge project and is taking me way longer than I had planned. The Archos 5 has so many angles that I don’t want to miss anything. PMP, PND, Web Tablet, Ereader, gadget, microblogging, set top box etc etc.
To keep you going while you wait, I’ve uploaded a nice set of photos of the Archos 5. The full set is in the gallery over at UMPCPortal. Click on any of the images below to hop over there.
The new set is available here.
Other photos including press photos and random Archos 5 images in the gallery.

The still upcoming Asus Eee T91 tablet netbook [Portal page] is looking better every day. I’m pretty excited for this device and what it could do to spice up the otherwise (dare I say) boring netbook space. Electricpig has a hands-on gallery of the T91 which looks to be a production model. This is the first I’ve seen of the included stylus as well which looks like a wimpy telescoping pointer. I wish they’d include a more substantial stylus, but I suppose there are many third-part options out there.
