Ahhh, so that's what you get when you cross a Clio NXT and swing-arm styled iMac... the Flybook VM from Taiwan's Dialogue. That swingin' 12.1-inch, 1280 x 768 widescreen panel folds down and around tablet-style which is sweet enough. But the inclusion of a telescoping arm means the panel can be projected safely away from that reclining econo-class fatso seated in front of you. The VM is Dialogue's first Core Duo (1.66GHz) and sports Intel's 945GM integrated graphics, up to 2GB of RAM, a 1.8-inch 30GB disk, integrated webcam, stereo speakers, fingerprint reader, ExpressCard slot, 802.11a/b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, a dual-layer DVD writer, and up to 7 hours off optional six-cell battery. Wait, there's more. According to the press release, the VM will also feature a built-in GSM/GPRS/EDGE radio. Oh please daddy, give us a pinch and tell us that's true 'cause that little tidbit is conspicuously abscent from their website's specs. No word on pricing or availability but at 3.6-pounds and about an inch thick, we'll be keeping an eye out sho'nuff.
