US700W UMPC from no-name OEM makes the big boys look bad


Sometimes it takes an unknown to show these megacorps how it's done -- and we do mean unknown: we've got plenty specs of this here UMPC, but virtually zero info on the manufacturer. All the same, if these looks and deets are any indication, we shouldn't have long to wait for rebadges to start popping up. The US700W sports a 7-inch 800 x 470 screen, Celeron M 1.06GHz processor, a 20-60GB 1.8-inch HDD, 1.3 megapixel webcam, SD card reader, Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11b/g. While it doesn't sound near beefy enough to run Aero, you get Vista Business or Ultimate pre-installed (hooray for Vistagami), and the 1GB of RAM should help on that front. Where it gets especially exciting is the 20.5mm thickness and 19.8 ounce weight, making it one of the slimmest and lightest products in its class. Things are also looking up in the US701 version, which includes a 2 megapixel camera, built-in SiRF Star III GPS, and a 1024 x 600 pixel display. Finally, the US702 does 'em all one better with a convertible keyboard, which boosts the overall thickness to 26mm, but is a must for certain users. Obviously, we're rather clueless in regards to price and launch date on this thing, but at least we've got a vid (after the break) to keep us occupied while we wait for this hotness to drop.
