German hardware outfit Maxdata have converted Via's simply named NanoBook
prototype into the awkwardly named Belinea s.book 1 Mini-Note, powered by Via's miserly 1.2 GHz C7-M processor. But just because it's short on electricity (and branding smarts) doesn't mean it's totally watered down: you've got an 840x480 screen, 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, and a DVI port all prettied up in a 2.2-lb., €629 ($924) piece of kit measuring a svelte 9-inches by 6.75-inches by 1.16-inches. But that's not the best part: we're still
digging that detachable Skype handset. Hey, 1995 called. It wants its mobile phone design back.
