MIU's $500 HDPC takes All-in-One seriously

It's huge, no doubt. But MIU's HDPC must be to pack such a broad list of specifications. First spotted as a prototype back in 2006, the 163 x 67 x 24.5-mm / 387-gram brick is now expected to go retail in July for up to ???500,000 or a US-equivalent pricing of just $500. That's dirt cheap for what they seem to promise:
  • 4-inch, 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen display which slides out and flips over for the cellphone interface
  • Up to a 1GHz VIA C7M ULV processor and 4GB of DDR2 memory
  • Dual, Windows XP / Linux Qplus embedded OS
  • Unspecified cellphone radio
  • Maximum 1.3-inch 60GB hard disk (or 4GB SSD) and miniSD/microSD expansion
  • 7-hour battery (or 90-hours at low power)
  • 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0
  • 2x USB, docking port, stereo speakers, QWERTY thumbpad and mouse
  • What looks like a 5 megapixel camera
  • DMB mobile television and external GPS add-on
All that tech allows the HDPC to function as a portable SatNav device, handheld gaming rig, cellphone, UMPC, PMP, eBook reader, digital camera, etc. Did we already tell you that it will cost less than $500? Oh right. See the unit in-hand after the break.
