UMPCs are looking pretty juicy in the specs. Based on the snazzy new VIA CX700 chipset, which enables hardware TV encoding and WMV9 decoding, the X15s run on a VIA C7M 1GHz processor, and include 512MB or 1GB of DDR2 RAM. The real interesting thing is the displays, which according to the spec sheet run at 800 x 480 for the 7-inch model, and at 1024 x 600 for the 5.6-inch version. Could be a typo, but we're afraid some squinting might be in order. There's of course the standard fare of 802.11a/b/g and 30 or 60GB HDD, along with stereo speakers and a fingerprint sensor. Also included standard is a LAN port, TV-out and an SD card slot. The mouse pointer is the same as that on the TabletKiosk eo UMPCs, and there are options for a built-in camera, GPS, DVB-T and DVB-H. With the odd screen sizes we're not even sure which is which in the pictures, but we'll be sure to be dropping more deets as these get closer to launch.
